‘No Legacy Is So Rich As Honesty’

All’s Well That Ends Well opens at MAC on March 3

 

“All’s well that ends well,” haven’t we heard that phrase somewhere, sometime?

It is the name of this often-neglected Shakespeare comedy — written in the years after Hamlet and Twelfth Night — points to a happy ending after problems and conflicts.

The poor doctor’s daughter Helen (Genesis Robledo) finds her Prince, Bertram de Rossillion (Leon Cortez), and succeeds in marrying him. He, however, falls for an Italian girl Diana (Aralyn Day).

Fairytale endings often do not mix with reality.

The two women meet and decide to play a trick on him. In the meantime, his companion (Jim Bennett) who is a liar and a braggard is taught a lesson. And the King of France (Michael Abruzzo) tries to untangle it all.

How will it end?

Merced ShakespeareFest will present this bittersweet play with an ambiguous ending at the Multicultural Arts Center (MAC) in downtown Merced on March 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12.

This local version of the classic story will be set in the 1960s when the music of the Beatles was all the rage.

Intense action, a special charm, a fool, a bragging coward, wit and drama, portrayed by a small cast of 14 performers will keep you on the edge of your seat!

Performances on Fridays and Saturdays will begin at 7:30 p.m., Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Please, allow ample time for parking in our busy downtown. You can buy tickets at the door; ticket prices are on a sliding scale from $10 to $20. The MAC is located at 645 W. Main Street.
