Orson Welles: Genius, Joke, Badass, Bastard. This “Docu-Fantasy Radio Play” tells the unbelievable and true(ish) story of Welles’s many attempts to play Shakespeare’s Shylock and the haunting ways that his life overlapped with the character. A fast, funny, and heartbreaking look at this extraordinary artist and the role that remained just out of reach. (
