Henry IV dress rehearsal

Today Henry IV part I premiered at the ADC Theatre. They had their dress rehearsal earlier in the day. For the play they had transformed the stage into the Globe Theatre. There were blood, swords and debauchery all wrapped up in a Shakespeare play.

There were a lot of photos, so I am trying a new format for the image gallery. Click on a thumbnail to see it bigger. Let me know what you think of this format, compared to the normal format.

There is also a blog post about the photo shoot for the poster.

The Varsity review gave Henry IV part I a well deserved five stars, The Cambridge Student review gave it 9/10 and The Tab (5/5).
