The fabulously talented Larry Cedar stars in this one act play based on three the most popular works of George Orwell. Seeing Mr. Cedar on stage is a not to be missed experience, and Orwellian showcases his gift for characterization and voices.

You know how sometimes a 1-person play can be really boring? ...Well, yeah, but not this one! I sat spell-bound in my seat while a kitchen in Paris, a farm, and a future world were all created right before my very eyes. It was a truly magical...continued

This performer is top-notch. He had several different characters, different dialect, and he did them so well, I thought he really was British (is he? I don't know). So I was really intrigued by his talkback after the show. His performance alone...continued

I brought 5 friends with me to see Orwellian, and everyone loved it. Larry Cedar is a skilled and talented performer. He brought Orwell to life in engrossing fashion. You don't need to be familiar with his works to enjoy this show.

I had a great time watching this guy act. He really made me feel like I was in the moment with the character. Quite talented.
