Turning 40 means often slowing down and taking fewer risks. That’s not the case for the Houston Shakespeare Festival (HSF). The city’s long-running salute to the Bard will head full steam ahead toward its 40th anniversary this summer.

Produced by the University of Houston’s acclaimed School of Theatre & Dance, the festival will present free performances of “1 Henry IV” and “The Two Gentlemen of Verona” August 1-10 in the city’s Miller Outdoor Theatre (6000 Herman Park Dr.).
