It was very popular as it appealed to the humour of the masses greatly (Especially the cuckolding). Also, the several ironies pleased them (such as Celia acting to be a priest - they were generally males, Rosalind pretending to be Ganymede pretending to be Rosalind again, etc.) Then, Rosalind fainting and Touchstone's wise remarks and nonsensical explanations humoured them. Over-all this was a laughter- evoking play.
