The horrors of war throughout time have changed little, and that is made apparent in this production of 'Henry V.' Led by a wartime correspondent as chorus, we watch as King Henry of England positions himself politically and embarks on a bloody military campaign in his quest to take what he believes is rightfully his: the crown of France. There the Dauphin, the Princess of France, prepares for battle. Part of Hudson Warehouse's 14th season presenting classics to the public in Riverside Park. Tickets are pay what you can.
