John Lithgow on The Role of a Lifetime
As violent images on the front pages confront us daily, we’re surrounded by productions of Shakespeare’s King Lear, the story of an elderly monarch losing strength and sanity, seeking order in chaos. Actor John Lithgow is playing him right now in The Public Theater's free Shakespeare in the Park production. He talks to Bill about what it’s like to perform the monumental role and its significance.
