Photos: Robert Sean Leonard as King Richard in Old Globe’s King Richard II

One of Shakespeare's greatest historical plays opens at The Old Globe on June 18. Robert Sean Leonard (TV’s “House,” The Old Globe’s Pygmalion) takes on the title role in "King Richard II". The play follows King Richard's political life after he slips in a moment, giving relative Henry Bolingbroke the opportunity to seize the crown. The play begins the theater's Summer Shakespeare Festival.
