All's Well that Ends Well, by William Shakespeare
Stimulating Shakes
Friday, November 29, 2002
5.0
Seldom-seen play with provocative themes makes this a refreshing show, well worth catching. Unrequited love: what makes us do it? The cowardly braggart unmasked, and how he survives humiliation. As usual Shakespeare gives us uncommon insight into human foibles with plenty of humor to leaven the pain. And also as usual the Tavern troupe ensures that the dramatist's words come across loud and clear, that his sense is not lost on us, and that his bawdy jokes are wrung to the last drop (and then some)! Maurice Ralston is superb as Parolles, the next best character to Falstaff - getting the braggadocio and the pathos just right. Joanna Daniel also shines as the humane countess. Peter Hauenstein's monotonous whine is (intentionally?) annoying as the anti-hero: the Tavern had better be sparing in casting this actor unless he'll change his delivery.
There's enough thought in this production to merit seeing it twice.
