News   "Three Men and a Baby" Star Will Make Shakespearean Debut in Free NYC Production
 
Steve Guttenberg, known for his roles in “Police Academy,” “Cocoon” and “Three Men and a Baby,” will be part of the cast of Hudson Warehouse’s production of Henry 4.1.

Guttenberg will be making his Shakespearean debut as Earl of Northumberland in The Warehouse's free June 4-28 production at The Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument, in Riverside Park.

The William Shakespeare classic, adapted by Joseph Hamel, will also feature Paul Singleton as King Henry IV, George K. Wells as Prince Hal, Roger Stude as Sir John Falstaff, Vince Phillip as Thomas Percy the Earl of Worcester and Julie Baber as Harry "Hotspur" Percy with Olev Aleksander, Yair Ben-Dor, Suzanne DuCharme, Sonja Gabrielsen, Linus Gelber, Sven Haabeth, Jack McKeane, Tony Mita, Sara Parcesepe, Emily Parman, Adam Sheaffer and Marcus Watson.

Nicholas Martin-Smith directs.

"The world is thrown into chaos with the execution of King Richard II," according to press notes. "The destruction brought on by King Henry IV usurping the crown from Edmond Mortimer leaves the world in the throes of a post-apocalyptic nightmare as different tribes struggle to build alliances in a world where medicine, the internet and a good lithium battery define power and civilization. And King Henry’s son, Prince Hal, is nowhere to be found. His time is 'better spent' with Sir John Falstaff and the misfits of the Boar’s Head Tavern."

The production will also have costumes by Emily Rose Parman and fight choreography by Jared Kirby. Susane Lee produces. The Soldiers' and Sailors Monument is on West 89th and Riverside. There are no tickets — just show up and take a seat on the steps of the monument. Shows begin promptly at 6:30 PM.
