Royal Shakespeare Company's King Lear Begins Previews Jan. 13

The Royal Shakespeare Company, criticized for abandoning a regular London home when Adrian Noble pulled them out of the Barbican Centre, is — under Michael Boyd — colonizing the West End with a vengeance.

Corin Redgrave previews his King Lear at the Albery beginning Jan. 13, following the RSC’s Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet at the same address. And the Playhouse, Arts and Soho theatres are also preparing to welcome the Stratford-siders.
