It was a great experience watching  “Henry IV” with the class. Although I was confused in some moments throughout the play, I really liked the setting and atmosphere. I liked how the audience was put into the play by the way we were all locked out and unable to use the bathroom, similar to the prisoner actors. I liked the concept of a stage surrounded by an audience.

I also liked the modern twist to the old play, especially the addition of some modern music, which caught my attention. Another thing that caught my attention was the way the actors broke character and went into the character of prisoners. Their acting made me believe that they were actually breaking character for real, only until I saw the acting security guards control the chaos in the prison.

Overall, although the performance was long and without intermission, I thought it was a good performance in an easily accessible part of Brooklyn. I would definitely love to attend another play in the St.  Ann’s Warehouse.
