The dogs of war are unleashed and a charismatic Warrior King emerges in Shakespeare's breathtaking depiction of the Battle of Agincourt. But the events before and after the decisive victory temper the fervor of nationalism—and paint a nuanced portrait of the introspective Henry, who learns that the attributes that make an inspirational leader often come in conflict with those that make a good man.

A Henry V for theatergoers who might balk at hearing every single stanza intact, A Noise Within's latest grabs you from the get-go and never releases its grasp. I give it two swords up.

A Noise Within's co-directors Julia Rodriguez-Elliott & Geoff Elliott have trimmed the play to a tight, muscular and energetic two hours and staged it with plenty of pyrotechnics, both aural and visual. Most of the cast storm the stage down the aisles from the back of the house while some rappel down from the rafters. It starts the show off like a Navy Seals Black Ops mission.
