Kevin Kline is Fit for a King! Lear Opens at the Public

Kevin Kline's relationship with William Shakespeare and the Public Theater goes back to the summer of 1970, when he played a soldier in their mounting of The Chronicles of King Henry VI, Part 2 at the Delacorte. With the March 4 opening of King Lear, in which Kline tackles the title role, it marked the actor's ninth production by the Bard with the New York not-for-profit, which, over the years has included his interpretations of such greats as Richard III, Henry V and Hamlet. Moreover, with its Tony Award-winning director James Lapine and a cast brimming with talent —including Larry Bryggman, Logan Marshall-Green, Tony winner Michael Cerveris and future Fresh Face Kristen Bush—how could we miss this historic opening night? Quite simply, we could not. Click on.
