About this show

Under the direction of Jenny Bennett, OBIE award-winner Ty Jones stars in the title role in this world premiere production of Henry V. One of Shakespeare's great history plays, Henry V examines the burdensome expectations that befall a young king who must not only live down his adolescent follies, but also inspire his fellow Englishman to follow him into war with France. The Classical Theatre of Harlem's interpretation brings to light the brutally thoughtful and biting humor of King Henry V's confrontational diplomacy. In a powerful exploration of what it means to be king, director Bennett dissects the warmongering tendencies of humanity as one man attempts to win the hearts of all. Added Free Performances! Marcus Garvey Park (Harlem), Aug 5 & 6 at 8pm, Free East River Park (Lower East Side), Aug 27-29 at 8pm, Free
