Story
of King Lear

Read More

Once every decade or so, a great actor comes to Broadway and gives a performance that reminds us why we go to the theater. Last year, that actor was Glenda Jackson in Three Tall Women. This season, “the best actress alive” (The Guardian) is back on Broadway, and she’s climbing the tallest mountain any actor can climb. Glenda Jackson is King Lear.

The Tony and two-time Academy Award winner plays Lear for 19 weeks only in an all new production directed by Tony winner Sam Gold (A Doll’s House Part 2, Fun Home), leading a cast that includes Tony winner Jayne Houdyshell (The Humans), Elizabeth Marvel (Other Desert Cities), Aisling O’Sullivan (Raw), Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones), John Douglas Thompson (Jitney) and Golden Globe winner Ruth Wilson (The Affair). King Lear will feature an original score by the legendary composer Philip Glass.

“Glenda Jackson is the mightiest of them all,” says Ben Brantley of The New York Times. Don’t miss her in the mightiest role of all time—King Lear
