About this show

How can you tell the difference between what is really real and what is genuinely counterfeit? This vexing question lies at the heart of New York City Players' adventurous rendition of Shakespeare's Henry IV, Part One, a delightfully wry mix of history, legend, politics, and comedy. Directed by Richard Maxwell, this Henry thrusts the core notion of authenticity into a landscape sprawling with battle and barroom scenes, plotting nobles, a host of miscreants, and an ultimately triumphant prodigal son.
