King Lear

from $48.00


Cort Theatre

138 West 48th Street New York, NY 10036

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, “the best actress alive” (The Guardian) is back on Broadway, and she’s climbing the tallest mountain any actor can climb. Glenda Jackson is King Lear.

Only through July 7, 2019, King Lear is on Broadway in an all new production directed by Tony winner Sam Gold (A Doll’s House Part 2, Fun Home), with 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 winner Ruth Wilson (The Affair). King Lear will feature an original score by the legendary composer Philip Glass.


Recommended for 12+. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
