About the Production: King Lear director Alberto Bonilla, known for his timely twists on classic Shakespearean dramas, transports this classic into a world of New York City's wealthy elite real estate titans. King Lear, suffering the beginnings of Alzheimer's disease, must divide his empire amongst his feuding children, while wrestling with his own mortality.
"Small independent Shakespeare productions are generally difficult to pull off. Short run time doesn’t generally allow for a heavy investment in difficult roles or elaborate production quality. But not so with The Secret Theatre which, under the guidance of director Alberto Bonilla and executive director Richard Mazda, continues to produce outstanding Shakespeare plays" ~ JK Clarke, Theater Pizzazz
