Director Stephen Fried and the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey create stage magic with their production of Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well

Helena, played with great passion by Ellen Adair, is the ward of the Countess of Rossillion, portrayed regally by Tamara Tunie. Helena is deeply in love with the Countess’ son Bertram, played with arrogance by Clifton Duncan. Due to her station, she has no hope of marrying him and so hatches a plan to win his hand by healing the ailing King of France, played by John Ahlin, who also steals scenes as the Countess’ clown, Lavatch.
