Subject: Query: Octogenarian Lears on Stage
Alvin Epstein, who played the Fool to Orson Welles' Lear as a younger
actor, will take on the old king in the Actors' Shakespeare Project
production of the play in Boston Sept. 29-Oct. 23. He's a very
sprightly 81. Anybody out there remember other octogenarian Lears?
