Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing, Odd directing choices, Mixed acting skills

See it if You want to support a young theatre company. You want to see non-traditional casting. You want a modern interpretation of a history play.

Don't see it if You don't want to see a significantly edited history. You want a uniformly, classically trained cast. You don't like small theatre spaces. Read more

Clever, Delightful, Funny, Great acting, Quirky

See it if You like new visions of classic stories with a wonderful cast of women.

Don't see it if You like old-school Shakespeare and want to see it that way

Classical NYC
August 1st, 2017

"A riotous and nuanced 'Henry V'...Rightmyer offers one of the most intelligent cuts of the script I have ever seen...The cast works truly as an ensemble, so that it seems almost disingenuous to single any one actor out for her contribution to the whole...The St. Crispin Day's speech...is given new breath, new desperation, new hope and vitality in Greener's honest telling...One of the best productions of this play it has been my pleasure to attend. Highly recommended."
