KING LEAR (BAM) NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: May 4, 2011
Did He Like It?
Sir Derek Jacobi is King Lear. An aging monarch. A kingdom divided. A child's love rejected. Lear's world descends into chaos, and all that he once believed is now threatened. Unrivaled theatrical partners, Tony and Olivier Award winners Jacobi and Michael Grandage (The Tempest, Don Carlos, and Twelfth Night) bring the drama's grand themes to vivid life in a production that unites one of the great actors of our time and one of England's most revered directors.

"“Entertaining” is hardly the first word that springs to mind when thoughts turn to “King Lear,” Shakespeare’s profound and merciless tragedy of old age.
