Virtual Shakespeare In Central Park: ‘King Lear’

Kentucky Shakespeare is a blessing upon Louisville: free, well-acted performances of The Bard’s classics every summer. And, with weekly videos of past performances, it continues to be a godsend even as we’re all confined to our homes. This Friday, KY Shakes is showing the entirety of its 2019 production of “King Lear,” a family tragedy about a king who must decide how much of his land to bequeath to his three daughters. Kentucky Shakespeare will post a link to the video on its Facebook page at the scheduled time of the performance. To get the full experience, order takeout from one of the Louisville Food Truck Association members that set up outside of each Kentucky Shakespeare performance (the theater group recommends Four Pegs, Ramiro’s Cantina and more) and take your laptop outside to watch the show while the sun sets.
