"King Lear" is, "as has been noted many times by critics, an “elemental” play. Passions of love, hate, rejection, and parenthood are presented in stark, almost primitive outline and, as though to stress the point, storm, lightning, battle, and death are woven throughout the fabric of the play in an almost contrapuntal fashion. Lear, more than any of Shakespeare’s plays, demands both the cooperation and the imagination of the audience, for the magnificence of the work transcends the boundaries of the theater itself. It is, perhaps, less a stage vehicle than many other Shakespeare plays; yet, it is this very fact that makes it Shakespeare’s masterpiece." --- Alfred G. Brooks (Director's Note)
