Henry IV (1)

Shane Ann Productions

I saw the most interesting production of Henry IV (1) last night produced and directed by Jeff Wise with some of his talented classmates from NYU Grad Acting. It was a 90 minute version of the play and they succeeded in telling the story –  which is no small feat considering it usually runs more like three hours plus.  The cuts were not even noticeable and I’m saying this about one of my favorite Shakespeare plays.  The acting (only six actors) was excellent and I have to say their voice, speech, text work was FANTASTIC.  And, oh yeah, loved those Techniques of Voice and Text!!!!  Wish it had an extended run somewhere.  Everyone should see/hear this production.
