While there are a few standout performances, this show is overly long and poorly directed with terrible costumes. Frankly, I expected way more from an Equity production.

Description

The History of King Henry the Fourth is a new adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henry IV Part I and Part II, commissioned by OPFT. Stanton Davis, the adapter and director, has made a single evening of theatre of these two popular history plays. Artistic Director Jack Hickey (recently seen on the OPFT stage as Cyrano) returns to the stage as the lovable, dissolute Falstaff. Intrigue, suspense, family tragedy, and swashbuckling battles mingle with history, wit, and slapstick comedy in a Shakespeare play that has something for everyone.
