King Lear Show Tickets

See a beloved Shakespeare play come to life on Broadway when you purchase King Lear tickets. This show is an adaptation of the tragedy play written by one of the greatest playwrights in history, and though it only comes to Broadway every so often, you won’t want to miss it when it does.

King Lear was originally written by William Shakespeare and first performed in the year 1606. It tells the story of a king who passes on his power and land to two of his three daughters after they declare their love for him. The king gradually descends into madness as he persuades his daughters to prove how much they love him. The show was first adapted for Broadway in 2004 with Christopher Plummer playing the lead. Famed Broadway performer Glenda Jackson took over the role in 2019.

In his time, Shakespeare’s plays were performed with minimal props, no stage lighting, and little to no background music. This Broadway performance features a full set and an original score by Phillip Glass, creating a more animated and engaging version of the show for modern audiences. The show is directed by Sam Gold and features a cast of talented Broadway performers. Get your hands on King Lear tickets to see this incredible performance live on Broadway.
