KING LEAR

ran February 28 to June 9, 2019
at the Cort Theatre

In William Shakespeare’s royal-family tragedy, considered to be one of the greatest plays of all time, the aging King Lear divides his estate between his three daughters, ultimately refusing his youngest and favorite her share because she won’t publicly admit her love for him. The decision leads to chaos and treachery within the kingdom and madness for its monarch. This groundbreaking, gender-blind version starred Tony Award-winner, Glenda Jackson. Ruth Wilson received Tony and Drama Desk Nominations for her performance as Cordelia and The Fool. The production also received a Drama League nomination.
