In 1990, the Mabou Mines theatre group worked to perform an adapted version of Shakespeare's King Lear featuring gender-polarized characters and set in the United States in the 1950s. Directed by Jill Godmilow, Lear '87 Archive follows the cast and crew as they prepare for the controversial production. Culled from days worth of footage, the final product ran six hours. Godmilow is the director of the documentary What's Underground About Marshmallows: Ron Vawter Performs Jack Smith and the 1987 made-for-PBS film Waiting for the Moon. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
