The female character with the most lines in Shakespeare's oeuvre is not Cleopatra, Rosalind or Juliet: It's Margaret of Anjou, one of the thorniest figures in the War of the Roses, who rises and falls in the Henry VI trilogy (and returns to throw curses like hand grenades in Richard III). Hudson Classical Theater Company concludes its summer season with a Margaret-centric mashup of the Henry plays, adapted and directed by Nicholas Martin-Smith, that stars Katherine Lerner-Lam as the blood-stained monarch.
