Henry V
February 10, 2014


How does an actor compel an audience to listen?  According to actor James Newcomb, the art of creating a role demands discipline, sweat… and sometimes a good long soak in a steaming bath.  Jamie reflects on his process and what Fluellen (Henry V)  might teach a young actor about the care that craftsmanship demands.  James Newcomb will be playing the Welsh Captain at the the Chicago Shakespeare Theater opening April 29th.
