Canon Fodder: King Lear

posted in: News, Uncategorized | 0

With our 2014 production of Othello GreenStage will complete Shakespeare's canon! We're continuing our celebratory look back at every play.

Today's play is King Lear performed by GreenStage in 2013. Lear was the play that brought us within one of completion of the canon. The production was directed by Erin Day and featured Vince Brady as Lear. The cast also included Meredith Armstrong, Anthony Duckett, Ashley Flannegan, Sam Hagen, Steve Scheide, Johnny Patchamatla, Eli Sklov Simons, Brendan Toner, Gianni Truzzi, Nicole Vernon, and Daniel Wood.

That's Brady as Lear in the photo above with (L-R) Vernon, Armstrong, and Flannegan during happier times, before things went sideways between the king and his daughters! Brady, by the way, is directing Love's Labour's Lost for GreenStage this summer.
