October 18 - November 20, 2011
Shakespeare's masterpiece, is one of the towering works of world
literature. In no other play is Shakespeare's tragic vision more
terrifyingly clear-and nowhere in his canon does he create a richer or
more complex set of characters. When King Lear divides his kingdom
among his three daughters, he sets in motion a cascade of violence that
sweeps the civilized world to the brink of chaos, and Lear to the edge
of madness. Featuring Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe and Emmy
winner Sam Waterston in the title role.

Director of The Public's Shakespeare Initiative.
