Joseph Marcell as King Lear

The famed Globe Theatre of London will bring its scaled-down production of “King Lear” to the U.S. this fall, and play three performances at Seattle’s Moore Theatre on Nov. 25-26. The production, directed by Bill Buckhurst,  features eight actors in a fast-paced adaptation.   It will be presented here with a “booth-style” stage, inspired by paintings and etchings from Shakespeare’s time. Joseph Marcell, a classical actor many will recognize for his role as Geoffrey the butler in the TV sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,”  is in the title role.

Tickets ($40-$60) go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 22.
