The Porters of Hellsgate start their 8th season with a stirring production of Henry V. The company has really built out its ensemble throughout the years while still keeping a solid core of younger actors, gone are the days of slightly uneven productions where shows were a little top heavy on talent. This production features strong performances in every role and some unexpected hilarity to balance out the drama with standouts including Thomas Bigley for his nuanced comical turn as "Pistol" and Christine Sage as a very plucky yet poignant "Boy."
Of course any strong production of Henry V demands a standout King and Chorus. Leon Russom delivers as the "Chorus" giving the show an immediate gravitas in its opening moments. The show is dominated by director Charles Pasternak in the title role who owns every inch of stage, especially during Henry's iconic show-stoppers "Once more into the Breach" and "St Crispins Day." Ironically the dramatically brilliant Pasternak's finest moment might be during the wooing of Princess Katherine( Eliza Kiss plays off of every Pasternak moment with perfection) where the audience finally gets to see the King exhale outside of war.
Just a terrific production that takes the time to acknowledge and play quite capably within the confines of its two tiered blackbox space. A must see of for Angelino Shakespeare since the play is rarely performed within city limits.
Henry V will star and be directed by Porters’ Artistic Director Charles Pasternak, who played the title role with Shakespeare Santa Cruz this past summer. The production will also feature Leon Russom as the iconic Chorus.
