BWW Review: HENRY V at Hartford Stage
by Joseph Harrison - Oct 27, 2018

In Shakespeare's day his plays served multiple purposes. In some cases, they created an escape for the people to forget their troubles and laugh or revel with and through the characters on stage. In others, the stories served as cautionary tales that made audiences think about their own lives through the lens of the troubles portrayed. Yet it was Shakespeare's history plays that aimed to take a pivotal moment in history and not only bring it to life for the audience to witness (and hopefully understand better), but to ground those stories in the present and allow those in attendance (and possibly those in power) to learn from the mistakes of the past. Thus, is the case with HENRY V, the current production being mounted at Hartford Stage. (more...)

BWW Exclusive: Dame Judi Dench Discusses Shakespeare, Her Passion, CATS, Potential Broadway Return
by Matt Tamanini - May 27, 2016

Only some are able to ever identify their specific passion, far fewer are able to achieve, and only a select handful are able to make their passion their life's work; Judi Dench is one of those few. When I asked her why, despite a career spanning more than five and a half decades, and nearly every major acting award the world over, she continues to return to the plays of William Shakespeare, in a tone exceedingly gentle, yet slightly dismayed that the question need even be asked, she said, 'Cause that's my passion, Matt.'
