Lost Nation Theater, proudly presents Hygienic Theaterwerks’ production of The King, based on William Shakespeare’s tragedy King Lear, for one night only Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at City Hall Arts Center, in downtown Montpelier.
This tour-de-force solo performance of Shakespeare's King Lear, by John Basinger, which premiered at The Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center, is at LNT one night only. THE KING presents an old man alone. Suddenly, he’s compelled to speak Lear's words and then all the others in the play, as phantoms, come swirling in upon him. Veteran Actor John Basinger was learning the part of Lear when it occurred to him to try it as a one-character play. It’s a fascinating and inspiring evening in the theater. "A Revelation!"
