King Lear @ Wyly Theater - Dallas

“The wheel is come full circle.” -William Shakespeare, King Lear,[masked]

A father rejects his daughter. A king neglects his people. The cosmos revolt. With this sweeping tragedy of a leader and his children, of love tested, relationships broken, and a kingdom divided, Dallas Theater Center culminates its four-year Shakespeare cycle – a much-heralded demonstration of how relevant the Bard’s great works are for our generation.Contains violence and nudity.

    King Lear! Whew, exhausting! No wonder they do that particular work so rarely. I had read that King Lear's descent into "madness" was more of what we would diagnose as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's today. I have to say that the actor hit it dead on - he even shuffle walked which is especially apparent in Parkinson's patients. Thanks for attending this very thought provoking play with me.

    Unfortunately we can't attend pre-show fun but do plan on having a late lunch early dinner afterwards. See you all there.

    Thanks for the info, Betty. My friend and I are meeting at Fedora's at noon for lunch. Anyone is welcome to join us and if we're done in time, we may make the lecture, too.

    I called the box office and they have tickets available. They said it was a glitch in the system and they'll get it fixed - whew! My friend and I are sitting on the ground floor in C108 & C109.

    • Sonia M.

      Yes I was about to email you directions- glad you got your tix! My husband is a software engineere & he just got an ear full from me about "stupid website" ha ha as if he could fix it! See you there!

    Looks like the Sunday matinee is all sold out unless they are holding 10 tickets for us. It is no longer available on the drop down as a selection on the ticket site. Sonia, if you find out they have reserved us some seats, please let us know as a friend and I were planning on attending.

    February 3, 2013

    • Sonia M.

      Marian there are still tickets! You are probably having the same problem I was with this silly website!! I just tried it & there are still ticks. I'll tell how...

      February 3, 2013

  • Sonia M.

    January 30, 2013

    • Sonia M.

      Oh i wanted to see if they would give a group rate but they did not respond to two inquiries - so I followed you and bought tickets.

      January 30, 2013

    Working the venue on Feb 14th

  • Sonia M.

    Hey all,
    I emailed the theater about group sales - pro's and con's. Usually they reply within a 24 hour period but if I don't hear back by tomorrow I will call. I just checked and there seemed to be plenty of seats left for that performance. This theater is the ever-changing venue so I don't know how to offer seat advice - plus it will be my first time there!
    If you have a minute there is a really eye opening time lapse video of how this theater was built for versatility. You'll have to copy and paste as I could not get it to hyperlink.

    http://www.attpac.org/index.cfm?PAGEPATH=Plan_Your_Visit/Venues/Wyly_Theatre&ID=38364

    I will post something more as soon as I know!! Really getting excited!
