At the request of the Queen, Shakespeare wrought this farce starring Sir John Falstaff of his HENRY IV plays, here transplanted from the fifteenth to the sixteenth century, where he attempts to seduce two wealthy married women who are a bit too smart for him. Director Clive Brill has orchestrated a rousing production that concentrates on clarity. Though a trifle short on personality, this is a delightful addition to Arkangel's series of the complete, uncut Shakespeare plays. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
