Subject:        Review of Production of King Lear

Here is a link to a review of a production of King Lear in which
Cordelia is deaf and her signing translated by a fool:

Here's a brief quote from the positive review:  "This "King Lear" seems
to have grown more reflective with the move from the Lansburgh, where it
ran in the fall of 1999. Indoors, Georgi Alexi-Meskhishvili's
coal-black, vaguely industrial set, with its oil drums on the floor and
huge metallic-looking semicircle above the stage, was unrelentingly grim
and oppressive. But this set wields less influence in the spacious,
tree-lined amphitheater, all but fading from view sometimes as
characters step to the edge of the stage and speak straight to the
heavens."
