The Classical Theatre of Harlem Presents Shakespeare’s Henry V

Classical Theatre of Harlem Shakespeare Henry V

If you missed The Classical Theatre of Harlem’s outdoor presentation of William Shakespeare’s Henry V during SummerStage at the amphitheater in Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park this past weekend, you’ll be happy to know that there is a full schedule of performances taking place this summer at the The Malcolm X & Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial Center, which is located at 3940 Broadway between 165th and 166th streets. Tickets are on sale now!

Henry V will be presented outdoors again during the last week of August, with FREE shows in East River Park on the Lower East Side.

Explore the brutally thoughtful, fiercely funny, belligerent diplomacy of King Henry V with The Classical Theatre of Harlem. Our young King Henry V takes the throne, his dying father’s advice to “busy giddy minds with foreign quarrels” ringing in his ears. His reputation as a fun-loving lad who’s lived among the common folk inspires love from commoners and disregard from his enemies. Join CTH’s powerful exploration of what it means for a king to bear the burdensome expectations of the crown – and the people to bear the expectations of the king – as Henry V works to win the hearts of all.
