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

very well done. Definitely a show for younger children which needs to be emphasized in the advertising. Please know that We really appreciated the accommodations your company and the theater worked out for my wheelchair ahead of time, It made our trip to the city a lot less complicated!

Rooted in a distinct European theatrical style and encompassing the universal language of clowning, Aga-Boom cuts through the barriers of language and culture with the art of slapstick, the humor of physical comedy and the delighted excitement of childhood featuring veteran Cirque du Soleil performers.
The show, which has been seen around the globe by over 500,000 people, is interactive mayhem that carries audiences to the other side of the funhouse mirror, with outrageous zaniness, unrestrained laughter, and more paper and confetti than a ticker-tape parade!
