24th Street Theatre brings Canada’s international touring production to the U.S. for one weekend only. In this mischievous one-woman tour-de-force adaptation of King Lear, Susanna Hamnett plays the Fool—and every other character—to tell a very personal and poignant story with breathtaking hilarity and heartache. Upending expectations, Nearly Lear blends exuberant storytelling, music and film with Shakespeare’s poetic text to usher the audience firmly into the heart of this great story. Welcome to a Lear that is profoundly accessible and fun, while serving the spirit, language and emotional core of the play. (Rated PG – ages 7+). Four performances only: Oct 19-Oct. 21; 24th STreet Theatre, 1117 West 24th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90007-1725; $12-$15; (213) 745-6516; www.24thstreet.org; Join us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/24thSTor follow us on Twitter @24thST
