King Lear

Show Closed

About this show

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, she's back on Broadway, and she's climbing the tallest mountain any actor can climb. Glenda Jackson is King Lear.

The Tony® and multi-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® Award winner Ruth Wilson (The Affair). This King Lear features an original score by the legendary composer Philip Glass.

Don't miss Jackson in the mightiest role of all time — King Lear.
