Photo Flash: First Look at Portland Shakespeare's LEAR'S FOLLIES

July 10
12:29 PM 2012
Portland Shakespeare Project presents an ambitious second summer of producing with The Season of Lear -- two shows, playing in rotating repertory. Lear's Follies opens on July 11 and King Lear on July 18. Both shows play on the Morrison Stage at Artists Repertory Theatre, 1515 SW Morrison Street, Portland, Oregon, through August 5.  BroadwayWorld has a first look at LEAR'S FOLLIES below.

Lear's Follies is set in a Virginia tobacco empire family in 1929; the play explores issues of pride, greed, friendship, devotion and the choices people make in their lives that keep them emotionally shackled to their past. This modern adaptation of King Lear by C.S. Whitcomb brings humor and perspective to the classic Shakespeare tragedy without losing its core power.

Tobias Andersen plays the part of Colonel Leroy King in Lear's Follies. He will be joined by Dave Bodin, Matt Smith, Gavin Hoffman, Gary Norman, Katie Butler, Amanda Washko and Melissa Whitney. Portland Shakespeare Project's Artistic Director, Michael Mendelson, is the Director.
