Franklin Stage Presents 'Orson Welles/Shylock'


Franklin Stage Company presents ‘Orson Welles/Shylock’.  Writer/actor/director Matt Chiorini tells about Welles’ life-long quest to portray this enigmatic and disturbing character from Shakespeare’s ‘The Merchant of Venice’, and how difficult it was to boil down the 70 years of this larger-than-life actor into just 70 minutes of theatre.
