On the rehearsal stage of ...platforms, the teasers overhead suddenly become yardarms with sails and a tall ladder becomes a mast. The platforms become the decks of the ship on which the cast sails through the storms and tribulations of the Pequod hunting for Moby Dick. Admirably bold and imaginative. - The New York Post An adventure in theatre going. As I left the first performance I felt myself rather oddly shaky and breathless...There is nothing else anywhere near like Moby Dick in the theatre. - The New York Daily News

              Enjoy eight hours of classic radio episodes starring the incomparable Orson Welles and his friends. Armed with the nickname The Boy Genius, Orson Welles graduated from the New York stage to expand his creative talents in the radio industry, hoping to use the audio medium to promo...te his stage ventures. Welles followed the edict that most stage actors applied--he played roles in hundreds of radio dramas produced by advertising agencies and the radio networks. After creating a minor panic in the minds of radio listeners with his 1938 War of the Worlds broadcast, Welles attracted the attention of a movie studio that offered the actor the spotlights of tinsel town ... resulting in Citizen Kane. Making the move to California, Welles continued to appear on radio programs, now established as a Hollywood actor, and made numerous guest appearances on variety, comedy, and dramatic programs. In 1941, and again in 1946, Welles starred in a chilling story titled The Hitch-Hiker, scripted by Lucille Fletcher, which thirteen years later was adapted into a television episode of The Twilight Zone. In the early fifties, when Welles was momentarily blacklisted, the actor moved to England and narrated the radio program The Black Museum and starred in The Lives of Harry Lime, a sequel to the Carol Reed classic The Third Man, now regarded as one of the one hundred best movies ever made. This collection of Orson Welles radio dramas are among his very best, and we hope you'll enjoy them for years to come!

              With a foreword by James Pepper and an essay by Jonathan Rosenbaum. Welles consciously conceived The Big Brass Ring as a companion piece to his masterpiece Citizen Kane. Here he is again concerned with the idea of the great man, and with what happens at the convergence of great t...alent, public ambition and the undertow of obscure, private longings rooted in the past. A film of The Big Brass Ring, its script heavily edited, appeared in 1999, with William Hurt in the lead role.
