IRC’s Ondine


On today’s podcast, Hank Curry is joined by the cast of Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium’s production of Ondine by Jean Giraudoux. The New York Times hailed Ondine “a work of art”, and Audrey Hepburn created a sensation on Broadway in the title role, winning a Tony Award in 1954 as the ethereal sea sprite who falls in love with a handsome knight-errant only to lose true love to the cruel realities of the outside world. Stay Tuned!



Directed by Aaron Cromie.

Described as “comic, enchanting and tragic”, the rarely performed classic considered to be French playwright Jean Giraudoux’s finest work will preview at the Walnut Street Theatre Studio 5 Wednesday, February 5 and Thursday February 6, and will open Friday, February 7 running through March 2, 2014.

The acting ensemble features faces familiar from IRC shows past: Susan Giddings, Robb Hutter, Jerry Puma, Ethan Lipkin, Ed Miller and Tina Brock, joined by Drew Carroll, Sarah Knittel, and Chris Davis. Philadelphia newcomer Ama Bollinger will play the title role of Ondine.
