King Lear: A Unique Production

Our production of King Lear… Nancy Meckler, who’s directing it, was great force in shared experience. And so what’s wonderful about it is that we have the total use of theatre. We’re not doing a TV play on stage. It also give us a great opportunity to be able to pick and choose anything we need to illustrate the text in terms of found items and, you know, the detritus of a sort of ruined society. Because you’re so exposed in that space, there’s just no hiding. And then you relent to that sort of very unique energy that that space has, and then it’s just joyous. There’s so many people just standing up and leaning in. It really is… I think it’s one of those – I don’t know any other theatre that has that experience.
