Photo Flash: First Look at Stacy Keach in Shakespeare Theatre Company's HENRY IV, PARTS 1 & 2

‚Äč

The Shakespeare Theatre Company, recipient of the 2012 Regional Theatre Tony Award, presents Shakespeare's Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2 as part of the Clarice Smith Repertory, starring Stacy Keach. STC Artistic Director Michael Kahn will direct both parts of this sweeping epic - one of Shakespeare's culminating achievements in the history play genre - over multiple nights. The two productions will run in the Company's Sidney Harman Hall (610 F Street NW) from March 25 - June 8, 2014. Check out a first look at Keach as Falstaff below!

Keach plays Falstaff, one of Shakespeare's most enduring and complexly human creations. Keach has an illustrious list of film and TV credits, including most recently The Bourne Legacy, 30 Rock and Nebraska. He returns to Washington for the first time since his acclaimed, Helen Hayes Award winning performance of King Lear for STC in 2009. "There are many colors to Falstaff in every scene, and I can't think of anyone better to play Falstaff than Stacy Keach" Kahn said. "Shakespeare Theatre Company owes a big debt to Stacy, as he was the first star to appear on our stage in Richard III."
