This story is actually about two other stories: William Shakespeare's play "King Lear", & Asimov's own novel "The Gods Themselves". About half the text devoted to each. Jonas Willard is the director filming them (makes "compu-drama" - some sort of computer animation). An author named Gregory Laborian fills in the role of Asimov.
Reader's familiarity with those stories will likely affect reaction.
I'd not read "King Lear"; found this part boring.
While "The Gods Themselves" is among the better novels of Asimov, it's an unusual one. I'd read it years ago, & found this part the story easy to follow. Not boring, but not great either.
