Henry IV, Part 1

Stacy Keach had a memorable turn as small-town businessman and occasional thief Ed Pegram in the Best Picture-nominated "Nebraska." When he isn't stealing air compressors and threatening legal action against Bruce Dern's character on film, there's a good chance he's acting on stage. He returns to Shakespeare Theatre, where he was last seen starring in 2009's "King Lear," to play Falstaff in the Bard's history play. Part I opens Tuesday; Part II will be performed in repertory, beginning April 1.

John Keabler makes Shakespeare sexy!

Shakespeare historical tragedies can be hard to watch, but John Keabler made this easy. First, he's prowling the stage, stealing the show from a very talented cast. You can't stop listening to him. Until he takes off his shirt and then you stop caring what he says as long as he keep going.
