BWW Reviews: Shakespeare's Globe Theatre Presents KING LEAR at the Broad Stage in Santa MonicaBWW Reviews: Shakespeare's Globe Theatre Presents KING LEAR at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica
by Shari Barrett - Nov 6, 2014

The several intertwined stories about characters motivated by the seven deadly sins and shocking scenes of excessive cruelty and suffering (especially the violent blinding of Gloucester, Lear's descent into madness, the raging storm, and the tragic death of Cordelia), make KING LEAR a profound exploration of the human condition in all its extremes and complexities. And when well performed by actors who fully comprehend the psyche of their character as well as the meaning of Shakespeare's vocabulary, brilliance happens. (more...)

It is gifted with notable performances by Peter Volpe as Sparafucile, the assassin; Joseph Barron as Count Monterone; Beth Lytwynec as the assassin's sister; and Michael Corvino as Rigoletto. It is, however, Sarah Coburn, who defines and gives glory to this production in her sterling tour de force performance as Gilda. (more...)
