The impossible busy Austin Pendleton adapts, directs and costars in a play that combines text from  Shakespeare's Henry VI, Part 3 and Richard III to provide a clearer sense of the rise and fall of the latter play's wicked titular king. Matt de Rogatis plays the nephew-killing hunchback tyrant; Pendleton plays the relatively kindly Lancastrian monarch he tramples on his way to the throne.

“Henry IV, Part 3”:  Do you mean “VI”?  Shakespeare only wrote two parts of Henry IV, but three of VI.
