Open: 04/25/14- Close: 05/11/14 King Lear
Broadway veteran and Titan Company Member Terry Layman returns to the Titan stage this Spring, assuming the title role in this searing new production of Shakespeare’s epic masterpiece. Both an intimate family drama about an aging king and his three daughters and an explosive political commentary, LEAR explores the most basic themes of our existence: love and loyalty; friendship and betrayal; destiny and the overwhelming inevitability of a life nearing its end.
