Directed by Daniel Sullivan

Featuring Tom Hanks as Sir John Falstaff, with Harry Groener, Hamish Linklater, Joe Morton, and Rondi Reed.

At The Japanese Garden on the West Los Angeles VA Campus

24 performances only! – June 5 to July 1 (Press opening June 8)

“Henry IV,” staged by Tony Award winning director Daniel Sullivan, featuring Tom Hanks in his Los Angeles stage debut as Shakespeare’s greatest comedic character Sir John Falstaff, with Harry Groener as Northumberland, Hamish Linklater as Prince Hal,  Joe Morton as Henry IV, and Rondi Reed as Mistress Quickly.  Director Dan Sullivan has distilled the exploits of Falstaff – “the villainous and abominable misleader of youth” - and his ne’er-do-well protégé Prince Hal from “Henry IV Parts One and Two,” into an evening of Shakespeare’s finest and most touching comedy.
