In The End

Mix comedy, tragedy, romance, desire and honor and what do you get? No, not Jean-Claude Van Damme. You get Shakespeare, and those needing a fix of the Bard this summer can check out All's Well That Ends Well, one of his deeper cuts. Presented by Shakespeare Dallas, it follows Helena, an orphaned commoner trying to win the love of Bertram, a nobleman who just isn't that into her. Don't worry, though, there's a happy ending when Bertram comes around in the end. Get ye olde-style entertainment 8:15 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays through July 25 at the Samuell-Grand Amphitheatre. Admission is $7 to $10. Children younger than 12 are free.

Wednesdays-Fridays, 8:15 p.m. Starts: July 16. Continues through July 25, 2008
