We had dinner at the restaurant, "Home" before the play. Lovely outdoor dining space as well as indoors. Great food...very fresh. And our server was lots of fun. Look forward to going back!

Production exceeded my expectations. I side with StageScene LA's review, not the overly fussy one by Stage and Cinema. Street parking typical for LA, but I thought I overheard there's a parking lot in back.

More Information


King Lear has divided his kingdom among his three daughters. Deceived by age and pride, he banishes his youngest daughter, blind to her devotion and the greed and cruelty of his two eldest. Lear is cast out by his eldest daughters into a raging storm and forced to keep company with fools and madmen, while Gloucester’s bastard son Edmund schemes against his half-brother Edgar. Tension mounts as sanity is lost, sight is taken, and war breaks out for control of the kingdom in the Bard’s stunning meditation on aging, family, and hysteria.


Larry Cedar as King Lear

with Leon Russom as The Earl of Gloucester

featuring: Michael Bigley, Dana DeRuyck, Sean Faye, Jamey Hecht, Jo D. Jonz, Gus Krieger, Christina MacKinnon, Kate O’Toole, Alex Parker, Tim Portnoy, Hilary Schwartz, Kevin Stidham, and Jesse James Thomas.
