Richard Harris to play 'Henry IV' at Mechanic

June 15, 1993|By J. Wynn Rousuck

Richard Harris will repeat his award-winning performance in the title role of Luigi Pirandello's "Henry IV" at the Morris A. Mechanic Theatre Nov. 2-28, Hope Quackenbush, managing director, has announced.

Harris won London's 1990 Evening Standard Award for his portrayal of Pirandello's deluded protagonist, a wealthy Italian who hits his head and awakens believing that he is Germany's medieval monarch, Henry IV. The actor last appeared in Baltimore starring in "Camelot" in 1986.

Directed by Val May, this production of "Henry IV" will make its American premiere in Baltimore and then continue on a national tour.

Its announcement completes the line-up for the 1993-1994 Mechanic Theatre subscription series.
