Mint Theatre Brings Hit Schnitzler Play Back; Daughter-in-Law to Continue

News   Mint Theatre Brings Hit Schnitzler Play Back; Daughter-in-Law to Continue It's a heady time for Off-Broadway's small Mint Theatre. The company, which specializes in neglected works from the dusty past, recently made its hit production of D.H. Lawrence's The Daughter-in-Law an open run—a first for the company. Now, the Mint will bring back its acclaimed rendition of Arthur Schnitzler's Far and Wide (Das weite Land) for a fall run.

The encore engagement will run Sept. 10-Oct. 26 at Theatre Three on the third floor of the Mint's 311 W. 43rd Street headquarters. The Lawrence work will continue on at the same address' fifth floor space.

Far and Wide (Das weite Land) was produced all over Europe when it debuted in 1911, though the play has never been seen in New York City. The story is a satirical look at Viennese society. At the center is the couple of Freidrich and Genia — she devoted to her husband, he a philanderer. Their conflict leads to the death of another man.

Mint artistic director Jonathan Bank has adapted the work and directs. The new cast features new additions Ezra Barnes and Kurt Everhart as well as returning artists Lisa Bostnar, Lee Bryant, Anne-Marie Cusson, Antony Hagopian, Ken Kliban, James Knight, Victoria Mack, Allen Lewis Rickman, Hans Tester and Pilar Witherspoon.

The original Mint run began on Feb. 7 of this year.

Tickets for Far and Wide are $45. For information call (212) 315 0231.
