Elizabeth Marvel, Jayne Houdyshell, Aisling O'Sullivan and John Douglas Thompson have also joined the production. Marvel will play Goneril, with Houdyshell as Gloucester, O'Sullivan as Regan and Thompson as the Earl of Kent.

British actress Glenda Jackson was previously announced as Lear. She previously portrayed the character in a 2016 production in London, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

King Lear begins previews Feb. 28 at the Golden Theatre in New York before opening April 4.
