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
Quotes & Highlights
- "Abrete Sesamo has a pedagogical message. The play's main character, a kid, lives a thousand adventures as he goes to outer space or under the sea. He learns the letters and gets to know new animals thanks to the book." --<em>La República</em>
- "Simple and beautiful. Elaborate visual poetry that thrills children into loving two things that they might easily hate early on: numbers and letters." --<em>Noticias Teatrales </em>
<p>Meet Granny María Babel and her cat, Blackie. Granny knits letters that dance on a tight wire and waters a potted plant that grows numbers instead of leaves. Then, once upon a time...a little boy who was excited to get a video game or a skate board on his birthday, throws a temper tantrum when the gift turns out to be a book. "Open Sesame...!" and the boy is swept into a Magical Realistic world that springs forth from the pages of the book. Children in the audience will embark on the adventure of a lifetime in this lyrical and whimsical visual production that features interactive large-format puppets in black-light and catchy music.
