King Lear

Revenge, rage, grief and delusion thunder upon the Delacorte as Tony and Emmy Award winner John Lithgow takes the stage as one of theater’s great tragic heroes, King Lear. New York’s most treasured summer tradition, Free Shakespeare in the Park, celebrated its 52nd season in Central Park’s famous Delacorte Theater with Shakespeare’s classic drama about a King who loses everything—including his mind—when he disowns his favorite daughter, and finds himself betrayed in return. The production also starred Annette Bening as Goneril and Jessica Hecht as Regan.
