The Porters of Hellgate Extends Run of Shakespeare's HENRY V, Starring Charles Pasternak, Through 3/29

The Porters of Hellsgate take on Shakespeare's most famous play about war upon their unworthy scaffold: The Whitmore Theatre. Embracing The Chorus' initial warning as to the inadequacies of his company's resources to "bring forth so great an object", this Henry V will be brought forward with the grittiness and edge The Porters have become known for. Within this "wooden O" both cast and audience will be taken in to the unapologetically theatrical journey of King Henry's invasion and conquest of France.

"This story shall the good man teach his son; And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by, From this day to the ending of the world, But we in it shall be rememberèd; We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;"

Henry V will star and be directed by Porters' Artistic Director Charles Pasternak Charles Pasternak Charles Pasternak, who played the title role with Shakespeare Santa Cruz this past summer. The production will also feature Leon Russom Leon Russom Leon Russom as the iconic Chorus.

"Esteemed actor Charles Pasternak masterfully delivers the audience a wistful, powerful and finally all grown up King Hal. His portrayal is mature and has a nuanced elegance." - Tara

McCabe, Santa Cruz Patch; "Pasternak has a powerful presence, and a great theatrical voice, that fills the space to create the illusion of an heroic icon." - Kurt Daw, Shakespeare

Tribe; "Pasternak is such a dynamic presence" - Lisa Jenson, Good Times Santa Cruz.
