Take a virtual trip oversees with this National Theatre Live broadcast of the performance starring one of the great stage actors of our time, Simon Russell Beale (Timon of Athens). Adapted to a contemporary setting, this production of Shakespeare's epic tragedy has been called "complex and potent" (Evening Standard) and "awe-inspiring" (Time Out). King Lear is the tale of an aging monarch whose descent into madness leads to upheaval among family and country as both are torn apart by the ambition and jealousy of his prideful daughters.

Pronounced “kush came,” this company will make its first West Coast appearance en route to New York. Controversial, startling and aggressive in movement and text, this dance-theater piece is based on the studies of couples’ relationships by noted psychologist R.D. Laing. Widely acclaimed on the international festival circuit, this award-winning evening, bursting with high-octane choreography, is both brutal and touching — and at times, hilarious. Virtuoso choreographer Liam Steel (of Stan Won’t Dance) directs the six performers of CoisCéim in a show that tries to untangle the complexity of human relationships.
