About this show

Round House Theatre presents the DC-area premiere of the Off-Broadway hit Orson's Shadow. Orson Welles, Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh, and Joan Plowright come to life in this clever comedy that re-imagines the drama that accompanied a 1960 production of Ionesco's Rhinoceros. The real fireworks exploded backstage where fragile egos, inflamed nerves, and a love triangle collide in an uproarious clash of the theatrical titans. A fictional account of real events, Orson's Shadow shows that these larger-than-life celebrities are still only human. Additional Ticket Information: A Pay-What-You-Can performance is arranged for Wednesday, January 31 at 7:30pm and Saturday, February 3 at 3:00pm. Half-price tickets are available for patrons age 25 or under (not valid on $25.00 tickets).
