A thrilling chance to see Shakespeare's King Lear performed by Sir Ian McKellen. London't Duke of York Theater is amazingly small, so you are standing next to everything. It wrenched all of the tragedy and anger out of you. It made you worry about parents growing old and the thoughts of people passed on. It made you hate sibling rivalry, and doubt that there is any lasting goodness in man.
Ian McKellen did all of that and more.
