"Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world
Like a Colossus...

-William Shakespeare
On this site in1937, legendary American actor-writer-producer-director Orson Welles founded the Mercury Theatre with John Houseman. Here Welles directed groundbreaking productions of Julius Caesar, The Shoemaker's Holiday, Heartbreak House, and Danton's Death. Wells and the Mercury would go on to make history with The War of the Worlds broadcast and Citizen Kane. Astonishingly, he would accomplish all this by his 26th birthday.
