Inside Opening Night of Broadway's Gender-Bending King Lear, Starring Glenda Jackson
Jackson and her costars sat down with us after their opening-night performance.
Shakespeare's King Lear returned to Broadway last night in a new production directed by Sam Gold, with Tony Award winner Glenda Jackson taking on the title role. The starry cast also features Ruth Wilson, Jayne Houdyshell, Pedro Pascal, Russell Harvard, and John Douglas Thompson, among others, who are performing Gold's new take on the epic tragedy at the Cort Theatre. They may have just done three-and-a-half hours of Shakespeare, Jackson and the rest of the company still took time after the curtain came down to talk to us about this grand revival.
