Ira Glass wrote the following Tweet after seeing “King Lear” at “Shakespeare in the Park” in New York City’s Central Park, the other night, starring John Lithgow, Jessica Hecht and Annette Benning.
Directed by Daniel Sullivan. Dramaturg Jim Shapiro.
“John Lithgow as Lear tonight: amazing. Shakespeare: not good. No stakes, not relatable. I think I’m realizing: Shakespeare sucks.”
Is he joking, or not joking?
