King Lear

Invite

September 9 – November 4, 2006 In the Albert
Approximate running time: 3 hours and 15 minutes

Stacy Keach returns to the Goodman assuming the title role of King Lear in a contemporary production that’s sure to be a spectacle! Lear is Shakespeare at his most profound, an ancient tale of a king and his three daughters that has become the most powerful drama in Western literature. Both an intimate family drama and explosive political commentary, Lear explores with stark violence and devastating with the most basic questions of human existence: love and duty; friendship and betrayal; leadership and loyalty; destiny and the overwhelming inevitability of a life nearing its end. Robert Falls’ 20th Anniversary Season production will capture both the epic grandeur and intimacy of Shakespeare’s masterpiece.
