Description

Scena Theatre: Playing Burton is happening on Thursday, December 01, 2022 at 07:30PM EST at Atlas Performing Arts Center with tickets starting at $12.50

"Playing Burton" is a fascinating one-man show about the storied life of international star of stage and screen, Richard Burton. This play offers a penetrating look at the notorious actor’s life—from growing up in an impoverished mining community in South Wales to becoming one of the greatest performers of his generation. "Playing Burton" is an intense and personal look at his lifelong achievements as an artist, his passionate, yet tempestuous love affair with Elizabeth Taylor, and his tragic, yet public battle with alcoholism. The lyrical, poetic text is a soulful exploration of fame, ambition, and identity told from the perspective of the megastar who experienced it all. Acclaimed actor Brian Mallon (Gods and Generals and Gettysburg), reprises the role of Burton with expertise. In 2005, he performed this play at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to great accolades. Mallon also played this role in NYC, LA and Cardiff. His fluency in Welsh provides genuine authenticity, as that was Burton's first language. Don’t miss this powerful drama by DC’s premier international theatre company.
