"'Bold but faithful' is how I'd characterize this production...While each cast member has a decidedly different spin on Lear, each is effective. As a result, we're not stuck with one actor's interpretation. We have the freedom to choose the one we find most convincing...It's Bruun-Moss's ingenious direction that delivers the final, shattering blow of the piece - a moment I found genuinely terrifying in all the right ways."
