King Lear

William Shakespeare

'King Lear' is perhaps Shakespeare's finest work. It represents the culmination of his career, a timeless conflict of good versus evil in an existential universe. Portraying King Lear will be Donald Rowe, a veteran of many theatre productions. He has acted in and directed over 150 plays spanning thirty plus years, two countries, and four states. He was Director of Theatre at Champlain College in Burlington from 1991 to 2003, directing 27 plays there. He also directed Threepenny Opera for the Vermont Mozart Festival, Hello, Dolly! for the Stowe Theatre Guild, and Picnic, The Night of the Iguana, Tom Jones, The Glass Menagerie, and An Inspector Calls for the Shelburne Players. His recent acting credits include the role of Salieri in Amadeus (two productions), Alan Turing in Breaking the Code, the title role in King Lear at Champlain College, and Norman Thayer in On Golden Pond and Leonato in Much Ado About Nothing for the Shelburne Players. Other roles include Capt. Creighton in The Novelist at the Flynn Space, Claudius in Hamlet at Circle Theatre Company in Colchester, Yvan in Art for the Stowe Theatre Guild, and Dysart in Equus at UVM. Of his performance as Salieri in Amadeus in San Miguel, Mexico, Los Angeles Times theatre critic Cecil Smith wrote: "I saw Ian McKellan play Salieri in Peter Shaffer's Amadeus on Broadway, Frank Finlay play the part in London, and, of course, F. Murray Abraham in the role in the film, but I have never seen it better played than by Donald Rowe....Rowe's was a bravura performance."
