Just a heads up:

MINT THEATER COMPANY
CONTINUES ITS 2000-2001 SEASON WITH
THE DOUBLE BASS
BY PATRICK SÜSKIND, AUTHOR OF THE NOVEL PERFUME

PERFORMANCES BEGIN FEBRUARY 15th

Mint Theater Company (Jonathan Bank, Artistic Director), in association with the Working Theater, will present The Double Bass by Patrick Süskind, a funny, provocative and poignant peek inside the life and work of a professional musician on the back bench of the back row of the orchestra. The play details the story of his unrequited love, unappreciated talent, and on-going wrestling match with largest of the stringed instruments. “Sometimes I feel like smashing it. Or sawing it into pieces. Or taking an ax to it.”
February 15th and continuing through March 11th only.

"The play is widely performed in Europe, but has had only limited exposure in the United States. That’s unfortunate for theatergoers in this country…because The Double Bass is a well constructed drama that is filled with laugh out loud humor tempered with provocative personal analysis." - National Public Radio.
