Jacobi in "King Lear" Feb. 18
Derek Jacobi stars in Donmar Warehouse's production of "King Lear," at the PAC on Feb. 18.

One of the greatest works in western literature, "King Lear" explores the very nature of human existence: love and duty, power and loss, good and evil.  Showtime for this sixth event in the National Theatre Live 2010-2011 series is 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 18 at the Newport Performing Arts Center.

“Who is it that can tell me who I am?” An ageing monarch. A kingdom divided. A child’s love rejected. As Lear’s world descends into chaos, all that he once believed is brought into question.

The Donmar’s Artistic Director, Michael Grandage, directs Derek Jacobi in his hugely acclaimed performance as Shakespeare’s (above) as Lear, broadcast to cinemas around the world from the Donmar Warehouse in Covent Garden. 
Jacobi’s long and distinguished career includes his Olivier Award-winning performance as Malvolio in Michael Grandage’s production of "Twelfth Night" (Donmar West End) and "A Voyage Round My Father"(Donmar and Wyndham’s Theatre). 

"King Lear" marks NT Live's second collaboration with another British theatre company, following the highly successful broadcast of Complicite’s "A Disappearing Number" last year.

'Frankenstein' is up next on March 25

Oscar-winner Danny Boyle (127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire) returns to the theatre to direct this visionary new production, which shows at the Newport Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. Friday, March 25.
Danny Boyle directs Nick Dear's play "Frankenstein," showing at 7 p.m. March 25 at the PAC.
Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein's bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Advisory: Due to the mature content, this production is suitable for viewers aged 15 years and older.
