Excellent production value, strong ensemble cast with standout performances in the roles of Chorus, Mountjoy, Mistress Quickly, and Pistol. Sound was well managed, lighting was excellent for staging and ambience.
I should have brushed up on Shakespeare's dialog prior to attending the performance. . . much of the dialog was hard to hear/understand due to the rapid delivery. The open-air venue, however, was delightful!
I liked Henry V--pretty straight Shakespeare; good set; pleasant directing; uniformly good acting. (Glad I brought a blanket to use as a cushion; the plastic seats are very uncomfortable.) Lovely setting in the woods.
The venue was beautiful, surrounded by redwoods and oaks. The set was simple but artistic and appropriate.
The acting of the major actors, especially Henry, was average. The minor characters were charming and humorous.
Beautiful setting. The acting was great. Would go again. Would like to have known that we could have brought some wine and cheese with us. Next time we will take our dinner to the park earlier and enjoy the park.
Fun ideas, half-price tickets, member reviews, and everything you need for great nights out.
What's the catch? Yeah, we get that a lot. There is no catch. Our supplier partners make their tickets available to Goldstar's members
at half-price as a way to introduce new audiences to theater, concerts, and sporting events. They fill seats and you get to Go Out More.
