London's National Theatre is broadcasting its original stage production of King Lear, and you can catch a live screening of the show at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater at Symphony Space. Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty) returns to the National Theatre to direct Simon Russell Beale (Timon of Athens) in the title role of Shakespeare's epic tragedy. Regarded as among Shakespeare's greatest plays, King Lear depicts an aging monarch's descent into madness as his family and country are torn apart by the ambition and jealousy of his children. This sweeping legend depicts the devastating consequences of pride, as King Lear's hubris and his daughters' ambitions destroy not just their own family, but an entire nation as well. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Theatre Within presents the 29th Annual John Lennon Tribute, featuring an all-star line-up spanning four generations, ranging from legendary vocalist Bettye LaVette to rising star Nicole Atkins -- plus acclaimed artists Joan Osborne, David Bromberg, Dan Bern, Lucy Kaplansky, The Angel Band, The Kennedys, Sonya Kitchell, Rich Pagano (of the Fab Faux), web sensation Chris Bliss, Wendy Osserman Dance and MAD Magazine's Joe Raiola. The show is a benefit for the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation.
Empowered by the overwhelming interest in the newly remastered Beatles catalogue and the debut of “Beatles: Rock Band,” this year’s Tribute will be the largest in its colorful history. The Annual John Lennon Tribute, the longest running event of its kind and the only ongoing Lennon Tribute show to have earned the support of Yoko Ono, was established in 1981 shortly after Lennon’s death. Continuing in its tradition of raising money for children’s charities, proceeds from this year’s Tribute will support the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (UMDF.)
“It’s tremendously gratifying to bring together such a talented and diverse group of performing artists to celebrate John Lennon,” noted the Tribute’s creator, Joe Raiola, who will be performing in the show himself for the 29th consecutive year. “I remember in the early days it was such a sad event, but over time it’s transformed into a joyful celebration – not just of John, but of the ideals for a better world that meant so much to him.”
