New York City is having a King Lear moment. The production of Shakespeare’s tragedy that runs through October 12 at NYU’s Skirball Center is one of several iterations to play the city this year, following stagings at Shakespeare in the Park, Theatre for a New Audience, and BAM.

The new Broadway musical, in previews now at the Palace Theatre, is built around the late rapper Tupac Shakur's lyrics and poetry, and it's often up to John Shivers and David Patridge, the show's sound designers,...
