Clear, Dutiful, Slow, Masculine

See it if you would like to see a clear, fairly complete accounting of Shakespeare’s most mature history play.

Don't see it if you know Henry V so well that you expect a new production to prune the material & shape a point of view. Read more

Ambitious, Great acting, Intense, Clever, Entertaining

See it if you would enjoy the mishmash of current dress and old weapons in the Bard's play that juxtaposes war and diplomacy. Good energetic troop.

Don't see it if the constant coming and going, up and down in a cavernous space with voices in all directions is not the Shakespeare you expect. It's long.
