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

I ordered 2 tickets on March 5th, 5 weeks before this event. When I picked my tickets up at the box office, one ticket was for Q103 and the other was for R116. Besides being in 2 different rows, the seats were at opposite aisles. Needless to say I was very upset. Whose fault was this - Symphony Space or Goldstar? A very nice young man who works at Symphony Space was able to get us 2 seats together in row F, which was fantastic. The show was for a very good cause and the talent was simply wonderful. The singers all had great voices, the comedians were very funny and the readers were superb.
<p>The benefit concert, sponsored by the Jewish Alliance for Change, will feature a host of stars from the worlds of television, film, music, and comedy, including Tony, Emmy, Oscar, and GRAMMY Award winners and nominees, prominent political leaders, progressive and LGBT activists - and special surprise guests! An unforgettable evening not to be missed! </p>
