Simon Russell Beale takes the title role in this “exhilarating” (Guardian, U.K.) production directed by Nicholas Hytner. A wealthy friend to the rich and powerful and an ostentatious host, Timon of Athens is surrounded by freeloaders and sycophants. After overspending his resources, he reassures his loyal steward that all will be well. When he calls upon his associates, instead of offering help, they hang him out to dry.
