Henry IV


Royalty. Rebellion. Rock.

The Hidden Room presents Shakespeare’s tragical-comical-historical-pastoral masterpiece about a delinquent Prince and his journey from Eastcheap to glory. Using a brilliant cut by the American Shakespeare Center’s Dr. Ralph Alan Cohen and a rowdy glam rock aesthetic, Henry IV will have you on your feet with live music from Shoulders’ Todd Kassens and a cast of remarkable players.
