About This Show

Playwright Bing Ringling yearns to savor the sweet taste of celebrity, and he’s hoping play number 844 will be his lucky break. But on opening night, Bing slips into a nightmarish phantasmagoria that shows him just how wrong things can go. From the devious mind of John Guare–who brought Six Degrees of Separation and The House of Blue Leaves to the American stage–Rich and Famous springs to life with twisted humor, rapid-fire dialogue, and outrageous plot twists. A.C.T. welcomes this newly revised, delicious dark comedy in its first major revival since its 1976 New York debut.
