Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well (4.1.25)

Front piece is here.

Recent clip about All’s Well That Ends Well — and the infographic.

In Shakespeare After All, she opens with a suggestion that All’s Well That Ends Well is a comic version of Coriolanus. Romantic comedy against strong-willed women?

Don’t forget, Shakespeare is attributed with being the first modern playwright to offer women as fully-fleshed people, real characters, not just empty stage representations.

Does beggar the question, who is in charge.

All’s Well

Think my old professor’s termed this a problem play, but it’s sort of an Elizabethan era Rom-Com?

The great actress playing Helena — seen her in many roles in the last few years, but this one had great range. Exceptional portrayal with some — comic — betrayal.

Rousingly comic performance by all.

Now, there’s some other clownish oaf in Shakespeare — can’t think of the character’s name, or play, but the king of France in this one needs to play Falstaff.

Beautifully rendered in the barn.

All’s Well
