featuring John Basinger in the title role.
July 17 - 20 & 24 - 27, 2014
in the Grove at Middlesex Community College.
We are very excited to be welcoming John to the ARTFARM Ensemble as King Lear.
He is known locally for his unique performances of Milton's Paradise Lost, and, more recently, his one man version of Lear, The King. He has appeared with many theater companies, including the National Theater of the Deaf and at the O'Neill Center, and has appeared in films as diverse as Children of a Lesser God (with William Hurt, Piper Laurie and Marlee Matlin) to The Wash (with Dr. Dre).
