Henry IV, Part 1
Henry IV, Part 1
Often considered Shakespeare’s most sophisticated history play, the unquiet reign of Henry IV following the murder of Richard II introduces the Bard’s greatest comedic character, Falstaff, the licentious, crafty knight-adviser to Prince Hal. As the action moves from political sparring between the king and the rebellious Hotspur to the clash of swords in battle, the prince begins a journey toward his heroic reign. Our most traditional production for 2014, with a gorgeously styled medieval setting.

I Hate Hamlet
I Hate Hamlet
A rising Hollywood star accepts the role of Hamlet at New York’s Shakespeare in the Park and his agent thinks he’s gone daft. Why would he trade a fluffy, big-money TV role for dusty old Shakespeare? Leave it to the ghost of actor John Barrymore, the quintessential Hamlet of the 20th century, to hilariously haunt Andy in a play that seeks to answer that question. Written by New Yorker contributor Paul Rudnick, who “may be the funniest writer for the stage in the United States today,” says The New York Times.

The Tempest
The Tempest
A gnashing storm spills the enemies of the great sorcerer and rightful duke of Milan, Prospero, upon the shores of his island realm, setting the stage for revenge. But from there, Shakespeare’s final, much-loved play defies expectations, erupting into a timeless, exotic tale of monsters and cavorting spirits, love and song, merriment and mercy. Directed by Geoffrey Kent, who created CSF’s 2013 smash-hit, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, this Tempest will evoke the early 1800s British maritime era.

The Merry Wives of Windsor
The Merry Wives of Windsor
Falstaff, one of Shakespeare’s most enduring comic characters, is at the heart of one of the Bard’s greatest laugh-out-loud farces. Pursuing the amorous attentions of two married English ladies, the pompous, rotund knight doesn’t let their mischievous pranking swerve him from his quest. Sure, he’s been punk’d, but isn’t it a sign of affection? This fresh new production will be set in a Catskills resort in the early 1960s. When Falstaff rolls up with his crew, it’ll be a hilarious mashup of Dirty Dancing and one of Shakespeare’s most popular comic plays.

Henry IV, Part 2
Henry IV, Part 2
Join us for two very special “original practices” performances of Henry IV, Part 2. This is Shakespeare as it might have been done in his time, featuring natural lighting, minimalist costuming, live music and cue scripts, resulting in a fast-paced, energetic performance. In the third play of the Henriad, Prince Hal is now on the road to kingship while his old advisor Falstaff descends ever deeper into ill health and petty criminality. See Part 1 in a matinee, break for dinner, then join us for an evening presentation of Part 2 for an unforgettable theater experience.
