James Earl Jones to Perform Scenes from King Lear at Bronx Museum of the Arts June 13

Grandparents Around the World presents a free performance of Shakespeare’s drama King Lear featuring James Earl Jones, Julianna Francis Kelly, Andrea Patterson, Obi Abili, and Linda Powell as well as a town hall to address “challenges of aging, isolation, dementia, elder abuse and caring for seniors.”

The performance will take place this Thursday, June 13 from 10 am – 12 pm at the Bronx Museum of the Arts with the intention of “engag[ing] diverse audiences in discussions about aging, dementia and elder care designed to confront social issues by drawing out raw and personal reactions to themes highlighted in the play and complex family dynamics.”
