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

October 21 - 23, 2010: The Midterm Shuffle
At the half-way point in the first (or only?) Obama Administration, The Thalia Follies takes satirical and musical stock of where things stand. What will the next Senate and House look like? What's become of "Yes, We Can!" or "Change We Can Believe In?" Which way are things headed? Is there hope? Guest Star: Jonathan Hadary
