About This Show

Inspired by a real event in theater history, playwright Austin Pendleton imagines the meeting of two living legends. Orson Welles and Laurence Olivier are brought together by esteemed theater critic Kenneth Tynan to collaborate on the absurdist play Rhinoceros. Also with Joan Plowright and Vivien Leigh, Orson’s Shadow, directed by David Cromer, is a funny and probing behind-the-scenes look at making art and living with celebrity.
All performances at Nikos Stage.
Box Office opens on June 7.
