CHICAGO -- Shakespeare Repertory, the city's third largest Equity theater (after the Goodman and Steppenwolf troupes), returns to its roots Feb. 1 with a revival of Henry V, the epic that inaugurated the company in 1986 -- in a newsmaking production that was performed on the roof of Lincoln Park's Red Lion Pub. Three actors from that production will resume the roles they played a dozen years ago.

Taking on the title role and making his Shakespeare Repertory debut is Stephen Kunken -- a young actor who appeared on Broadway as Johnny in the Roundabout Theatre production of Misalliance and who has also been seen by New York audiences in Henry VIII and A Dybbuk at the Public Theater.
