Richard III opened this past Friday to a large, warm house who responded with an enthusiastic standing ovation. The reviews will be posted here as they come in, but in the meantime, here’s a look at the lobby video that greets Hilberry patrons before they enter the theatre.
below is the video that is featured in the lobby before performances of Richard III. It includes a welcome from Company Member Jordan Whalen, an interview with director Alison Vesely, and an interview with actors Edmund Alyn Jones and Carollette Phillips, who play Richard and Ann in the production.
Challenged by life’s obstacles that have left him disfigured, Richard weaves a fiery web of intrigue, removing all obstacles, and all people, that stand between him and his passion for the throne of England. An atmosphere of insecurity pervades, no one dares reveal their thoughts and danger lurks in the shadows. Battles of wits and clashes with swords scorch the life of this political genius.
