San Francisco's Theater of Others to Stage ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL

San Francisco's Theater of Others to Stage ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELLTheater of Others is producing their tenth show, William Shakespeare's All's Well That Ends Well, March 23-April 8 at the Kelly Cullen Community Auditorium in San Francisco. This rarely seen late masterpiece will receive a full production, set in the French Second Empire, with music of the Romantic period. Director Glenn Havlan will play it close to the archetypal folk tales that were Shakespeare's sources and inspirations.

All's Well That Ends Well is the story of Helena, the daughter of a famed physician, who cures the King of a fatal disease and is given the choice of any husband. She picks Bertram, the count of Rosillion, who she has secretly loved for years. But when Bertram rejects her, gives her a seemingly impossible series of tasks required to earn his love, and runs away to a foreign war - What can she do but follow and persevere? All's Well is about worthiness vs. heredity and presents one of Shakespeare's most able women in her quest to win the man she loves and earn her advancement in a strict society.

Glenn Havlan directs a cast of 13 at the Theater of Others' home, the Kelly Cullen Community Auditorium, 220 Golden Gate Avenue (between Leavenworth and Hyde) in San Francisco. All's Well That Ends Well runs Thursdays through Sundays, March 23-April 8. As with all Theater of Others productions, admission is Pay-What-You-Will.

Who are Theater of Others, Theatre Residencies?

Theater of Others is a San Francisco theater company with a special mission: To add a fresh cultural resource in the City's Tenderloin district, offering classical theater with a pay-what-you-will admission. All performances are open to the public in the beautifully refurbished Auditorium at the Kelly Cullen Community, 220 Golden Gate Avenue in San Francisco. Theater of Others is a project of the local Theater Residences, Incorporated, an umbrella organization for small theater companies.

Theater of Others is managed by Glenn Havlan, founder of the San Francisco Free Civic Theater in 2000 as a Rec/Park adult program to utilize City facilities and resources to create a producing repertory company. In ten years with SFFCT, Glenn produced twenty-five full-scale mainstage productions and a dozen showcases, directing most of them. SFFCT presented professional-level theater as a free public resource.

Theater of Others is dedicated to producing the less familiar plays of Shakespeare and other Elizabethan and Jacobian playwrights, or staging well-known Shakespeare plays - but with a new approach. Theater of Others is fortunate to have the venue, talent, and community support to put timelessness on stage.
