    First time at a Shakespearean play, chose Henry V as it epitomizes the zeal and the uncertainty as the country headed towards the end of Elizabethan times. The actors were superb and I really enjoyed the show. The ending part of the show with the immigration officer I found in poor taste and nothing to do with Henry V. I'm still confused as to the reason of this political statement and really killed the evening for me.

    We booked last minute and had excellent seats . The cast were brilliant and made the language sing. The stand in performer who compensated for a sick cast member gave a nuanced performance. Very entertaining.
