Bill Irwin as the Fool in the Public Theater's production of the tragedy “King Lear."

Not for his doomed character, of course, but for the possibility of an enlightening new interpretation of a well-worn character. As an actor deeply steeped in the traditions of clowns, according to both the commedia dell’arte and Samuel Beckett, Mr. Irwin delivers on that promise."
