King Lear at Annenberg Center
Old King Lear, weary of royal duties, proposes to break up his kingdom and divide it among his three daughters. But this rash generosity is cruelly repaid leaving Lear to discover much too late that the life he led was based on false values. Direct from London and starring Joseph Marcell of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air fame, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre presents a faithful restaging of King Lear that’s with tempestuous poetry, touches of humor and moments of heart-rending simplicity. Up to 4 KYW 1060 Insiders will win a pair of tickets to see King Lear at Annenberg Center on September 24th.
