Tragic Kingdom

Aaron Spelling certainly injected Shakespearean ambition into his glittering prime-time soap operas -- Melrose Place was a total tragicomedy -- but here’s a theatrical mashup we never could have envisioned: Ted Lange starring in a touring production of King Lear. Lange, he of the red tux, perfectly spherical ´fro, and charming two-finger point, stole our hearts as the lovable bartender Isaac on The Love Boat and inspired us to feel the burn on the most recent season of Celebrity Fit Club. Now he will display nuance and skill when the Classical Theatre of Harlem presents its production of the Bard’s most potent play in the Studio Theater at the Carnival Center for the Performing Arts. The show opens tonight at 8:00 and runs through November 18. Tickets cost $45. On Monday, November 13, the Carnival Center’s education department will offer a free combat fighting class inspired by the play. Call 305-949-6722, or visit
Nov. 15-18
