Frank Langella to play 'King Lear' in BrooklynJune 20, 2013 @ 7:55 am
NEW YORK (AP) - Frank Langella will be taking on one of Shakespeare's greatest roles _ King Lear _ and letting audiences in two countries see it.
Producers said Thursday Langella will debut his Lear at Britain's Chichester Festival Theatre this autumn and then take it to the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York early next year.
"King Lear" will be directed by Chichester's Associate Director Angus Jackson. It will run at the Minerva Theatre in Chichester from Oct. 31-Nov. 30 and then in Brooklyn from Jan. 7-Feb. 9.
Langella was most recently seen in Terrance Rattigan's "Man and Boy" on Broadway. He has won three Tony Awards, most notably as Richard Nixon in "Frost/Nixon," a role he later recreated for the 2008 film version, earning an Oscar nomination.
