The Lion in Winter by James Goldman is the perfect play to experience if you enjoy Period Plays and Shakespearean Dramas yet find it challenging following the old Shakespearean language. Written in modern English, The Lion in Winter which premiered on Broadway in 1966 is a play depicting the personal and political conflicts of Henry II of England, his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine, their children and their guests during Christmas 1183. It has all the flavoring and trappings of a medieval setting, royal family rivalry and a touch of comedy, magnificently performed by the cast.
It’s been noted that one of the main things all people who live to be 100 years old have in common is that they each wake up every morning and do something they love, without fail. Well, if this is true, than the immovable Don Eitner is well on his way.
