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
- "Perhaps one of Nemr's greatest contributions to tap, to be honored someday by the next generation, is his skill in making tap dance an ensemble form....Nemr borrows artfully from the structures and compositions of modern dance while retaining all the spirit and individuality of tap." --<em>Albany Times-Union</em>
- "Nemr, a tapper extraordinaire, has taken on the massive task of reviving the superlative steps and styles of the late masters Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, Jimmy Slyde, Buster Brown, Bubba Gaines and Chuck Green...Nemr stirs the soul with his devotion to this quest and his ability to achieve it with stunning accuracy." --<em>Schenectady Daily Gazette</em>

Tap dance is an oral tradition bestowing upon each dancer the responsibility to work through the techniques and thoughts of their mentors and make something of themselves from that which they have been given. Echoes In Time reaches back into the collective bag to pull out the roots of the dance by recreating works from many of the Masters. From Bill "Bojangles" Robinson and Bubba Gaines to Jimmy Slyde and Gregory Hines, Echoes In Time opens a window to the heart of a tap dancer.
Echoes In Time, a collection of tap repertory by Buster Brown, Steve Condos, Bubba Gaines, Chuck Green, Gregory Hines, Henry LeTang, Jimmy Slyde, and Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, is made possible by National Endowment for the Arts' American Masterpieces: Dance initiative, administered by the New England foundation for the Arts.
