Sam Waterston is what might be called a pure actor -- versatile, dedicated, intelligent and very good indeed, at home in any medium and any period.
Los Angeles Times
In no other play is Shakespeare's tragic vision more terrifyingly clear -- and nowhere in his canon does he dramatize more powerfully or humanely that only kindness and love are potent enough to counter mankind's darkest impulses.
When King Lear divides his kingdom among his three daughters, he sets in motion a cascade of violence that sweeps the civilized world to the brink of chaos, and Lear to the edge of madness.
Featuring Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Sam Waterston in the title role.
