Sir Laurence Olivier. Orson Welles. Vivien Leigh. Joan Plowright. Kenneth Tynan. When these champions of the theater rehearse Ionesco’s Rhinoceros, mere mortals best step aside. With lightning wit and scathing insight into the true nature of genius, Austin Pendleton’s play opens the private worlds of these very public people, exposing their warmth, their egos and their glittering madness. The broadcast includes a conversation with actor Robert Machray on the challenge of playing Orson Welles.
