HENRY IV, Part 1

Directed by Robert Currier and Rob Clare

Darren Bridgett as the Mad Hatter and Hannah Kornfeld as Alice

Producer’s Perspective:

Henry IV, Part 1 is a great and popular Shakespeare play (well, as popular as a play can be with Roman numerals in the title.) It has the incomparable Falstaff in all his insatiable glory. It also has slews of other great characters – the young Prince Hal, the aging king himself, brash Hotspur, warlike Douglas, shamanic Glendower, clueless Mistress Quickly and many, many others. To do it justice requires careful casting, costuming and direction.
