Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

HENRY IV, Part 2

Directed by Robert Currier and Rob Clare

Darren Bridgett as the Mad Hatter and Hannah Kornfeld as Alice

Producer’s Perspective:

Producing Henry IV, Part 1 and Henry IV, Part 2 in repertory was ambitious for Marin Shakespeare to tackle. As it turned out, Part 2 was our lowest ticket seller in our 18 year history. But the artistic satisfaction of presenting these two plays, and presenting them so well to universal acclaim, more than made up for the small audiences. The plays allowed a company of 17 lead actors to play multiple roles or – in the case of King Henry and Prince Hal – to fully explore the arc of a character over the course of the two plays. For our actors, it was a wonderful creative challenge. For audience members who attended both parts, it was a rich and rewarding theatrical experience.
