See it if OK, it is over, so you can't, but it is an enjoyable presentation for completists who need to see them all. It is well textured.

Don't see it if It has aggressive (stylized) violence contrasted with the calm and mild Henry toing and froing, preparing us for the more popular Richard 3.

Stage Buddy
August 7th, 2017

"The actors of this production prove that even Shakespeare in a parking lot can be a transcendent experience...Brad Frost is wonderfully bloodthirsty...Alessandro Colla turns out a compelling performance...There is one important difference between 1400s England and 2017 America: democracy. That may be our saving grace, but it doesn't mean we have nothing to learn from 'Henry VI: Part 3,' especially as presented in this very timely production."

Times Square Chronicles

"The overall vibe was that this troupe was going to put on a play for the sheer joy of telling a really good story...That being said, the production itself ran the gamut in terms of quality and clarity...Clancy’s choices are not subtle. He clearly wants the audience to feel the relevance of Shakespeare’s words to today...Nevertheless, there were outstanding moments, namely Colla’s performance...The enthusiasm exuded by the ensemble as a whole is undeniable."
