Story by Stacy Wescoe (with photo of Caitlin Kinsella) on the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival highlights the 2005 season, which includes four masterpieces, a children's play and a green show. Wescoe notes that producing artistic director Patrick Mulcahy is most excited about the production of "Henry IV Part 1," considered by many to be Shakespeare's greatest play and the most popular in his time. The play is not performed nearly as often as Shakespeare's other plays and there are several reasons for this. According to Mulcahy, it's a very large-scale production and too costly for smaller theater companies. Also, the play with its off-putting title can seem intimidating. Lisa Higgins, marketing director, who also is quoted in the story, states that people tend to think the play is boring because it is an historical drama, but in reality, the play is very entertaining.
