Best known for wedding and beheading a few unfortunate ladies, Henry VIII was also the subject of William Shakespeare’s final history play—the one that ultimately led to the demise of London’s historic Globe Theatre thanks to an errant cannonball. The always-innovative Actor’s Shakespeare Project takes on the volatile king and his court with performances through January 5 at the Modern Theatre at Suffolk University (525 Washington St.). The rarely produced play is bound to be a treat for Shakespeare fans and history buffs alike. Tickets are $28-$50 and can be found at actorsshakespeareproject.org. Call 866-811-4111 for more info.
