wonderful setting, level ground, bug spray provided. A long production with one 10 minute break. It starts at 7 and went to 10:20 p.m. Parking was free on Sunday in the parking garage just east of the park. My only complaint was the program. It...continued

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.

More Information


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.
