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
Editor Philip Gourevitch and Senior Editor Nathaniel Rich co-host a night of new voices from the pages of The Paris Review. For more than 50 years, The Paris Review has been the place to find the exciting new writers of the day. Philip Roth, V. S. Naipaul, T. C. Boyle, Ann Patchett, Edward P. Jones, Ha Jin and Rick Moody all made debuts in the pages of the Review. In the past three years, under its new leadership, the magazine has again given national exposure to an extraordinary range of masterful new voices in fiction—writers distinguished both by their originality and by their ability tell a truly memorable story. Among these new stars are the writers represented at this event: Karl Taro Greenfeld, Lisa Halliday and Daniel Kehlmann. Performers include Campbell Scott, Isaiah Sheffer and B. D. Wong.
This event is part of the series Selected Shorts: A Celebration of the Short Story.
