"American Shakespearean Lead Player"

...no classical act I’ve come across agitates so forcefully for support of an elite corps of American Shakespearean lead players as does Hayden’s vigorous contributions to the “Richard II” and “Henry V” running in repertory through mid-April at Sidney Harman Hall. The double-casting was a nervy gambit, and the mere fact that Hayden would take it on speaks to the sort of voracious appetite you wish could be capably fed on the stage more often.
