Delightful, Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if you want a "problem play" mostly solved. Great characters, speeches, fun reveals. Barebones...so the play's the thing. WS writes gr dialogue

Don't see it if you dislike Shaksp. Impt to listen carefully, since lines are unfamiliar. One actor subpar; cuts c've gone deeper. Review plot beforehand.

Smart, Dramatic, Taut, Engaging, Fun

See it if you want to see a top-notch production of infrequently performed, 2nd-drawer Shakespeare.

Don't see it if productions with lots of characters & lots of action in a very small space make you claustrophobic. Read more

Theatre is Easy
December 11th, 2018

"Sturdy, accessible staging by director Emily Lyon, but it often feels like a tentative interpretation, one that’s not quite willing to probe beneath the surface of the play to explore the murky uncertainties that make the work so hypnotizing. Lyon’s cast handles the text adroitly...Lyon’s direction also tends to miss out on Shakespeare’s rawer comedy...It should be possible to embrace what’s most empowering about Helena’s journey without losing sight of what’s most complex."

Theater Pizzazz
December 24th, 2018

"I find it hard to understand why William Shakespeare’s 'All’s Well That Ends Well' is so seldom performed. When done as elegantly as Hedgepig Ensemble’s recent, very brief, run at the Gene Frankel Theatre it’s as inviting as any of Shakespeare’s major comedies...Bolstered by terrific acting, it makes for an absolutely delightful comedy...I can only hope the show is somehow remounted elsewhere in the near future."
