Actors from the London Stage perform 'King Lear'
Wed, September 30, 2009 • 7:30 PM - 7:30 PM • B. Iden Payne Theatre
Actors from the London Stage returns to The University of Texas at Austin this fall with a production of King Lear. Employing just five actors to assume all the roles in a Shakespearean drama, Actors from the London Stage performances are minimalist in terms of props and staging, intimate and compelling. The performances emphasize language, characterization, and dramatic energy; the results are startlingly clear and powerful, even magical, for audiences of all ages in a way that large-scale productions in the big theaters of Stratford and London can never be.
