An Evening Celebrating the Art of Arthur Schnitzler
Presented by the Austrian Cultural Forum, Mint Theater Company, & Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, Graduate Center, C.U.N.Y.

mannyThis evening celebrates the art of great Austrian writer Arthur Schnitzler and previews the Mint Theater’s February premiere of his brilliant Das weite Land (Far and Wide) in a new English language version. Join adaptor/director Jonathan Bank, John Simon (drama critic, New York Magazine), Schnitzler expert Andrew Wisely (author of Twentieth Century Criticism of Arthur Schnitzler, due out this spring), and Dr. Frank Hentschker from the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, C.U.N.Y. in a special evening of conversation on the life and work of Arthur Schnitzler, complete with an excerpt from the 1987 film adaptation of Das weite Land by Luc Bondy and a dramatic reading of Schnitzler’s pioneering short story Lieutenant Gustl.

“He had the most uncannily penetrating, witty and tragic view of every cranny of man-woman relations, and expressed it with a kind of ruthless lyricism …It is what you might get from a stethoscope that can hear the unconscious, a stethoscope that can sing.

John Simon, New York Magazine
