Henry V First Night
By Open Air Theatre
Guests, press and members of our 2016 Open Air Theatre family – including casts of Running Wild and Jesus Christ Superstar – gathered for a glorious opening night of Henry V.
The first reviews are in:
★★★★ “Robert Hastie’s revelatory revival…cuts to the heart of its concerns. A vital wakeup jolt to us all” (Daily Telegraph)
★★★★ “Michelle Terry is riveting. This is an excitingly staged production in which armies clash by smoke-filled night and drums resoundingly echo” (Guardian)
★★★★ “It’s immersive qualities place us in the thick of the action: soldiers spill out into the aisles, drummers pound a blood-pumping rhythm behind us, and…the “blast of war” does indeed blow in our ears” (The Arts Desk)
★★★★ “(Michelle Terry’s) a superb orator, her delivery fresh and intelligent, sometimes disarmingly gentle, sometimes completely commanding. She has such a way with verse, the words sphere in her mouth and she packs nuance and emotion into every line. A triumph for Terry. She is one of the most capable Shakespearean actors around.” (The Stage)
★★★★ “Michelle Terry brings a touch of danger to Shakespeare’s warrior king” (Time Out)
