Glenda To Play Lear In NYC

Glenda Jackson will do “King Lear” next spring on Broadway. I saw her do the role in late 2016 in London, directed by Deborah Warner. (The Broadway staging will have new director and cast.) I went backstage after the London performance, and met the actor. Trump had just been elected. “Miss Jackson,” I said, “what do you think of our new President?” She replied, “I don’t do the storm scene twice in one night.”
