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

This was a fun talk. It was rather informal like the banter and questions that go on at a book reading, but it was nice to be able to see and hear in the auditorium. very nice venue. A little overpriced for this type of event. But I did like the show.
University of Chicago economist Steven Levitt and award-winning writer Stephen Dubner discuss the follow-up to their revolutionary book Freakonomics, which sold more than three million hardcover copies worldwide and spent two years on the New York Times bestseller list. A discussion with the audience and a book signing will follow.
