Best of all is Joseph Millson as Henry. At once contemplative and commanding, he combines much of both Branagh's and Olivier's approaches, as he struggles to reconcile the public and private faces of the king. Sunday Express

Millson makes for a statesman-like Henry, delivering his speeches with gravitas. The Stage

Henry V: Millson revels in the complexity of the monarch

Another review for Joseph Millson as Henry V at the Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre has been shared online, with kind words for all the performances.  

Joseph Millson takes on the role of the heroic leader. Persuasive and full of charm one moment, ruthless and murderous the next. Millson revels in the complexity of the monarch exploring every layer with subtlety and style. He tackles Shakespeare’s famous “Once more to the breach, dear friends” monologue with a solid and rousing conviction: his army literally chomping at the bit, breathless for the battle to begin. In contrast the commanding warrior loses all composure when attempting to woo Katherine, faltering over his words as he bashfully fumbles in French.

A new review for Henry V at Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre has been shared by Reviews Hub, with some kind words about Joseph Millson as Henry. 

The title role of King Henry is one of the most challenging written by the bard with numerous lengthy yet ingenious speeches, most of which are well known and often quoted. Many fans of Shakespeare will have their own idea of how these speeches should be delivered. What a challenge to take on, and Joseph Milson stands up to it with the majesty and gallantry of, well, a king. Delivered with real attention paid to the detail of the language, Millson’s interpretation has a lovely classic feel to it. A little quiet at times in the open air, yet Millson successfully reveals to the audience what is truly going on in Harry’s mind and the difficulties behind leading his band of brothers into battle.
