All's Well That Ends Well
The third title of ASC's thrilling Actors' Ren Summer Opens This Weekend!
Check out ASC's summer lineup of engaging programming for all ages!
Electrifying and immediate, Macbeth plunges headlong into the darkest depths of the human condition and the toxic underbelly of politics and warfare—with murder begetting murder, and blood thirsting for blood. This twisted tale ends as it began, in the manifestation of a dark prophecy; with one final, fatal blow, the light prevails and tomorrow dawns anew.
In this final, epic installment of Shakespeare’s Henriad trilogy, ASC veteran Brandon Carter leads “once more unto the breach” as King Henry V—one of the greatest monarchs in English history. Swashbuckling adventure and romance burst at the seams of this the most exciting of Shakespeare’s histories, which ends, as so many of the great stories do, in a wedding.
All's Well That Ends Well
Helena has a heart that will not be denied. All’s Well That Ends Well upends and reexamines the love story, reveling in the imperfection. Part fairy tale, part farce, and all heart, this often-overlooked masterpiece takes audiences on a hilarious journey through courtship and class, danger and desire, and ridicule and (if the title proves true) redemption.
Keene by Anchuli Felicia King
Keene By Anchuli Felicia King Directed by Mei Ann Teo Keene is a laugh-out-loud funny, thought-provoking play that finds two young scholars of color, adrift in a sea of white at a scholarly Shakespeare conference, where they grapple with their longing for recognition, the scrabbling competitiveness of their peers, and their own hilarious personal demons.
