Audience Reviews for National Theatre Live: King Lear

½

I hope that everyone who sees this goes in knowing that ot's a recording of aive performance. For some, I imagine, that would be a decidedly unpleasant surprise.

This is a delightful production. I'm a huge fan of Terry Pratchett and own Nation, but haven't read it yet. I loved this movie/performance and would love the opportunity to see it really live.
