Arguably Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy, King Lear tells a cautionary tale about good intentions gone terribly wrong, the dangers of mistaking professed love for loyalty, and the consequences of disregarding the truth (even from the mouth of a Fool). Guest artist Henry Woronicz takes on the coveted role of Lear, the once-powerful ruler brought to ruin by misguided choices, betrayal, and ultimately, his own broken heart.

“A prismatic portrait of royal entitlement and elderly exasperation broken by cruelty into humility.” – Los Angeles Times
