Video of Acclaimed Orson Welles Play Arrives on DVD Jan. 28
By Andrew Gans
StageDirect, which brings theatre to people's living rooms, will release The Magnificent Welles on DVD and video Jan. 28.
About the original production of The Magnificent Welles, The Seattle Times wrote, "Wolland bears a remarkable resemblance to Welles. There are moments his curling lips, arched eyebrows and body language suggest Welles playing Charles Foster Kane and others when he suggests a more vulnerable side to Welles. . . . [Wolland] turns the show into a genuine tour de force."
StageDirect's CEO and founder Gary Cole, a former corporate attorney and CIA employee who always had a love for the theatre, says, "The late, great Orson Welles has attracted a huge following, and we hope The Magnificent Welles does the same. This DVD is a must-see for Orson Welles fans and anyone interested in the history of American cinema."
