Type: Audio

Sir Laurence Olivier. Orson Welles. Vivien Leigh. Joan Plowright. Kenneth Tynan. When these champions of the theatre get together to rehearse Ionesco’s Rhinoceros, mere mortals best step aside. With lightning wit and scathing insight into the true nature of genius, Austin Pendleton’s new play opens the private worlds of these very public people, exposing their warmth, their egos, and their glittering madness.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Caroline Goodall, Glenne Headly, Martin Jarvis, Robert Machray, Orlando Seale and Simon Templeman.
