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
The actors will read selections from James Baldwin, Joyce Johnson, Norman Mailer, Robert Lowell, Sonia Sanchez, as well as an excerpt from Joan Didion's classic essay "The White Album." Songs of the sixties help take us back to the age of free love, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Sexual Revolution.
