Now a major motion picture from acclaimed director Richard Linklater, starring Zac Efron, Claire Danes, and Ben Chaplin.

An irresistible romantic farce that reads like a Who's Who of the classic American theater, Me and Orson Welles is set during the launch of the then twenty-two-year-old Orson Welles' debut production of Julius Caesar at the Mercury Theatre on Broadway. Beautifully translated to screen by Richard Linklater, the film stars Zac Efron as Richard Samuels, a stage-struck seventeen-year-old from New Jersey who wanders onto the set and accidentally gets cast in the show, forever changing his life as he becomes caught in a vortex of celebrity, ego, art, and love.

Swift, snappy, bouncy read...marvelous capture of the off-stage drama of any show....where (most) is forgiven after the first curtain goes up.

For anyone who enjoys theatre or working in theatre, this book is a lot of fun and brings to light interesting details about the historical characters it depicts. I thought it was a really enjoyable and entertaining read.
