Henry VIII

WELCOME TO OUR weekly curated column. Feature photo: The opening of Henry VIII at Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse completes the company’s second time performing Shakespeare’s entire canon.

Opening this weekend

Henry VIII. Through June 16. Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse. In this episode of Shakespeare’s historical saga, Henry VIII is a virile young man enthralled by the women of his court. The play, full of grand pageantry, includes the coronation of Anne Boleyn, the christening of Elizabeth, and famous speeches by the noble Duke of Buckingham, the grotesque Cardinal Wolsey, and Queen Catherine. This production is especially exciting as it marks the second time The Atlanta Shakespeare Company has performed Shakespeare’s entire canon. Tickets and info on the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse website.
