Because one man, creator Matt Sax, plays all seven characters, it cannot be told whether audiences prefer the Sir John character over the others. I Henry IV has been produced many times.
It may not be the most frequently stages Shakespeare production, but it is a highly significant one. A first presentation influenced a queen to the point where she demanded another be written in order to give a character a happy ending. Another version was being done of the same play each year for an extended period because there was such a liking for this particular play and its characters.
Even later, an American would create and perform an internationally acclaimed adaptation done as a one-man hip-hop production. Clearly I Henry IV has been a successful work that has remained relevant and enjoyed even centuries after it was first performed. I Henry IV is not a commonly viewed piece by Shakespeare.

The reason for this is because of the predetermined opinion of the work that is given by the lack of information. When looking at historic productions of the piece, there is very little detail put on the play or the elements of the play. Instead, the historical value of that one production or the actors who were significant in other roles is written about.
Other times, the plays will be combined and discussed as one. Because of these, I Henry IV is not one of the plays that have strongly entered contemporary society. There is a negative predetermined connation to the play because it does not have a large place in society. Previous productions have been numerous and significant, but they are overlooked in history, making it more difficult to study in an historical view.
When performing this piece, it could be suggested that a director place an emphasis on the character of Falstaff.
Even when the original playgoers viewed this play, the royalty were ignored in place of the more scandalous bar gang. For this reason, they should be given as much attention as the scenes that more directly relate to the plot of ascending the throne. Adams, W. A Dictionary of the Drama. Philadelphia: J.

Year of the Fat Knight is Antony Sher's account - splendidly supplemented by his own paintings and sketches - of researching, rehearsing and performing one of Shakespeare's best-known and most popular characters. Praise for Year of the King: 'This is a most wonderfully authentic account of the experience of creating a performance' Sunday Times 'The most exciting actor of his generation and an eloquent writer on the side' Observer Praise for Sher's Falstaff: 'A magnificent, magnetic performance - Sher plays down the fatness to emphasise the knight's upper-class origins.
But, just as you start to warm to this Falstaff, you are reminded of his rapacity' Guardian 'It is Sher's irrepressible Falstaff that will linger in the memory - a lord of misrule who's absurd, delightful and in the end deeply sad' Evening Standard.
