We are thrilled at the prospect of offering true 'Learheads' guaranteed access to the many future productions of this essential tragedy.
—Joseph V. Melillo

Guarantee your seat at every King Lear produced at BAM and Theatre for a New Audience from January 2015 until the end of time.

Each Lifetime Lear pass is good for a pair of premium location seats to each and every future performance of the play presented in Fort Greene (additional venues to be announced). A total of 26 passes are available—the number of scenes in King Lear

Future productions will be announced with each upcoming season, but pass holders can already look forward to BAM’s 2045 Winter/Spring Season, featuring Ryan Gosling as Lear. Other popular actors being considered for the legendarily physically demanding role include Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights), Adam Driver (Girls), and new Brooklynite Patrick Stewart.

About the pass 
 
The Lifetime Lear pass comes in the form of a braided crown of reeds to be designed by a Brooklyn artisanal milliner, custom fitted to each Learhead's pate. The reeds are symbolic of nettles, thorns, and hemlock, which will not be used in order to avoid poisoning.
