As the saying goes, "Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely." This is especially true for King Lear, the title character of Shakespeare's brilliant creation. When it is time for King Lear, the king of England, to give up his powers to his daughters, he picks the two who flatter him most, mistaking it for love. What happens after that has sold copious amounts of King Lear New York tickets during its tenure in the Big Apple.
King Lear's other daughter Cordelia does not flatter him like his other daughters. His anger at her prompts him to banish her, and she marries the King of France. Lear begins to realize the folly of his choice when he tries to visit and stay with his two daughters who received his power. The relationships quickly deteriorate to an unforgettable and stunning climax.
