Houston Shakespeare Festival: Richard III
The relentless ambition of Richard Plantaganet dominates the stage in Houston Shakespeare Festival's production of Richard III, a fast-paced roller-coaster ride of political maneuvers, media manipulation, and pushing one’s luck beyond the breaking point. The Wars of the Roses have put Edward IV on the throne, with his brother Richard having done much of the dirty work. But, while everyone else is ready to squabble over the courtly pecking order, Richard’s ambitions haven’t yet been satisfied. Lenny Banovez, Artistic Director of New York City’s award-winning TITAN Theatre Company, directs the story of Richard's murderous path to the crown.
