Disguised by a gray beanie and shades, Zac Efron and costar Christian McKay attend the unveiling of the Me & Orson Welles plaque at the site of the original Mercury Theatre in NYC on Tuesday afternoon (November 24).
The 22-year-old actor was also on hand to welcome Chris Welles Feder, the daughter of the late actor Orson Welles. Christian plays Orson in the upcoming flick debuting in limited theaters on Wednesday, November 25.
The plaque reads: “On this site in 1937, legendary American actor-writer-director-producer 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. Welles and the Mercury Theatre 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.”
