Patrick Page takes on the role of Henry IV in the U.S. debut of Tom Stoppard's adaptation of the Pirandello play, which receives a Jan. 9 reading from the Red Bull Theater Company.

Tony-winning director Jack O'Brien, who staged Stoppard's epic The Coast of Utopia on Broadway, directs the sold-out 7:30 PM reading that takes place at Playwrights Horizon's Mainstage Theater. It is part of the Red Bull Revelation Reading series.

In addition to Page (Spider-Man), the cast also includes Benjamin Walker (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), Tony Award winner Richard Easton (The Invention of Love, The Coast of Utopia), Tony winner Jennifer Ehle (The Coast of Utopia, The Real Thing), Mamie Gummer (Uncle Vanya, Les Liaisons Dangereuses), Victor Garber (Present Laughter, Sweeney Todd), John Ellison Conlee (The Full Monty), Darren Goldstein (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), Aaron Krohn (The Coast of Utopia), Daniel Stewart Sherman (Desire Under the Elms) and Tony nominee Paxton Whitehead (The Importance of Being Earnest).

Here's how Red Bull describes Stoppard's take: "A haunting inquiry into madness by the Italian master of illusion sparkles in this new version by a contemporary linguistic virtuoso."
