All’s Well that Ends Well, by William Shakespeare, presented by the Shakespeare Players

BuyTickets_240px-no-feeAll’s Well that Ends Well, by William Shakespeare, presented by the Shakespeare Players program of the Rochester Community Players, directed by Cece McFarland

** Interpreted for the Deaf April 23 

Shakespeare Plays of Rochester presents William Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well April 8 through 23 at the AllsWell7Multi-use Community Cultural Center, 142 Atlantic Avenue.

Dr. CeCe McFarland, the director, has chosen a fairy-tale setting for this fantastical comedy in which Helena, a woman of modest birth, pursues her true love, the well-born Bertram.

Helena’s questionable tactics are marked by the intrigue and comic trickery for which Shakespeare is known, and, of course,  give rise to the famous saying about how things turn out.

Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. on April 8-9, 14-16, 21-23, and at 2 p.m. on April 10 and 17.

For more information contact James Landers, the producer, at halfmoon@rochester.rr.com (585) 315-6122 or visit Rochester Shakespeare Players at www.rochestercommunityplayers.org. Tickets will be available at the door and online at www.muccc.org.

$19 general admission, $14 Seniors over 65, $9 Juniors under 25.

CITY REVIEW: “”The Seafarer” at MuCCC   Alone at sea  By Leah Stacy

Sharky has been away a long time, and he says he’s come home to take care of his newly blind brother. It’s Christmas Eve so naturally there’s a card game on — but for Sharky, the stakes are really, really high.

“…a supernatural drama that combines the folksy sensibilities of an Irish ghost story with the streetwise dialogue of modern day Dublin.” (Wade Bradford, plays.about.com)

“The play is brilliant and McPherson, as both writer and director, has given us plenty to ponder. If a good musical leaves you with a song in your head, a good play leaves you with characters that stay in your heart. The Seafarer is such a play, and it takes you on a journey that offers no transfers or returns.” (Barbara Mehlman & Geri Manus, newyorktheatreguide.com)

Featuring Tom Bigongiari, Ken Dauer, Mark John Donahue, John R. Jaeger, and Gregory Ludek.
