Reviews for Henry V (on Trapeze)...

This production still merits a must-see designation, recommended to anyone seeking true theatrical innovation.
— News & Observer
The physicality, the music, the sexual innuendo and the general irreverence make this Henry V an easy-to-enjoy version. It is snappy and often humorous, with Shakespeare’s own jokes and those added to accommodate the form...
What artistic mileage could eight performers get out of five braces swinging above stage?
The answer: enough mileage to qualify Henry V (On Trapeze) among the season’s highest recommendations.
— Indy Week
Breathtakingly original.... The ingenious production concept and exuberant staging by director Steven Cole Hughes and aerial choreographer Eileen Little deserve the highest praise... You probably will never see a more imaginative and invigorating retelling of this familiar chapter from English history.
