Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson star Benjamin Walker has joined the cast of the Red Bull Theater's Jan. 9 reading of Tom Stoppard's adaptation of Pirandello's Henry IV.



Tony-winning director Jack O'Brien, who staged Stoppard's epic The Coast of Utopia on Broadway, will direct the sold-out 7:30 PM reading that will take place at Playwrights Horizon's Mainstage Theater.

Spider-Man's Patrick Page stars in the title role, in a cast that also features 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).

Henry IV is presented as part of Red Bull's Revelation Readings series. 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."
