Originally an absurdist play by Eugene Ionesco, Rhinoceros tells the story of a French town plagued by rhinoceroses. These are not ordinary rhinoceroses, but people who have been victims of “rhinoceritis.” Or is it something else entirely? But, why are they turning into rhinoceroses and what is Ionesco trying to tell us about society? —IMDb
A comic masterpiece. Weird and wonderfully absurd, and featuring some of the best work from comedy legends Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel, as well as a top-notch supporting cast and a great score by Galt MacDermot. Director Tim O'Horgan does an excellent job keeping the stage-bound material lively and cinematic. People really need to seek this one out, it deserves to be better known.
