Ask the Experts

I'm Just Not That Into You:
My Review of Shakespeare in the Park's All's Well That Ends Well

Count Rousillon and Rejector of Helena, the Poor Physician's Daughter

It has come to my attention that NYC's Shakespeare in the Park sneaks some weird bits into their current version of the play about me, All's Well That Ends Well. By "weird bits" I mean a lusty kiss between "me" and the character of clingy, lame Helena. To be clear: in this production, "Bertram" understands completely that he's kissing Helena. In reality, I only kissed Helena when I thought she was someone else: Diana, who's much better looking.

What can I say about this production? If you ask me, the Expert in this matter, the Shakespeare in the Park version is complete fiction, with no basis in reality whatsoever.

That said, the kiss was pretty hot. That part of Bertram they got right on!
