Awarding-winning Broadway actor and artist-in-residence Eugene Lee will star in Shakespeare’s “Richard III,” the most recent production to be brought to the stage by Texas State University’s theatre and dance department.

The performance will take place on Feb. 12-16 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 17 at 2 p.m. at the University Mainstage Theatre, located at 430 Moon St. in San Marcos.
