Rated 4.0

It’s a good adaptation of a big play to a small stage, and Brian Harrower is fantastic as the venal duke-become-king in this play set near the end of the Wars of the Roses. Harrower’s conniving, sly, funny Richard carries the play on his crooked back; he’s aided by a fine supporting cast. F, Sa 8pm; Su 2:30pm. Through 5/8. $12-$15.
