The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey launches its 2012 milestone 50th Anniversary season with William Shakespeare's saga of a young prince's reformation and ascent to manhood – Henry IV, Part One. Considered one of Shakespeare's most popular history plays, this rousing tale has not been produced on The Shakespeare Theatre stage in 20 years. Henry IV, Part One began performances on May 30 and runs through June 24 at the Theatre's Main Stage – the F. M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre.
Check out photos from the production, featuring John Ahlin, Brent Harris, John Little, Patrick Toon, Jordan Laroya, Izzie Steele, Jon Barker, and Derek Wilson, below!
Henry IV, Part One features Shakespeare's brilliant invention of Falstaff, the colorful character who appears in three of the Bard's plays. In Henry IV, Part One, we see him at the height of his rowdy and bawdy powers. Along with the delinquent Prince Hal, the fiery Hotspur, and a host of nobles and ner'er-do-wells, fact and fiction blend seamlessly under Shakespeare's sure hand.
For tickets or for more information, call the box office at 973-408-5600 or visit www.ShakespeareNJ.org. The F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre is located at 36 Madison Avenue (at Lancaster Road), in Madison.
