The somber atmosphere of Old St. Paul's Episcopal Church could not dampen Ashland Croxton Jr.'s enthusiasm as he described his nephew Darryl Croxton, who died a month ago. The soft-spoken man of 78 spoke of his nephew's ability to touch an audience through his acting. "If he was sitting here right now in that pulpit and reading the Creation story," Ashland Croxton Jr. said, laughing, "I guarantee you he'd have you in tears." Three weeks ago, Darryl Winslow Croxton, a local actor and poet, was found dead in his Mount Vernon apartment, apparently of heart disease.

Miracles are the stuff of holiday legend. So staging a Shakespearean tragedy to open the day after Christmas might seem tragic to holiday cheer. But for director and producer Darryl Croxton, the timing was exactly right for King Lear. The date marks the 397th anniversary of its first documented production, on Dec. 26, 1606, at court for James I of England. Tomorrow night -- with actors in modern dress, against a black backdrop and in an Episcopal church -- the tragedy will serve as the inaugural production of Croxton's new theater company, Theatre of the Rising Sun. Croxton, a Mount Vernon resident who grew up primarily in Forest Park, formed the company in April hoping to imbue the local theater community with his lifelong love of Shakespeare's work.
