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 on Jan. 9, 2012, that will take place at Playwrights Horizon's Mainstage Theater.
As previously reported, 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."
In addition to Easton (The Invention of Love, The Coast of Utopia), Ehle (The Coast of Utopia, The Real Thing), Linklater (Seminar), Gummer (Uncle Vanya, Les Liaisons Dangereuses) and Garber (Present Laughter, Sweeney Todd), the reading will include Patrick Page (Spider-Man) and Michael Stuhlbarg (The Pillowman).
