AUDIENCES LOVE THE MINT:

F U RT H E R R E A D I N G S S E R I E S :

P RO F E S S O R B E R N H A R D I By Arthur Schnitzler

Longtime friends of the Mint know Arthur Schnitzler as the Austrian playwright who wrote plays of piercing psychological insight; Mint has produced his dramas FAR AND WIDE and THE LONELY WAY.

I love the way you find ‘forgotten’ plays and writers and mount them regardless of cast size. It is a brave undertaking, even in the best of times. Please keep up this necessary work.

We have been going to the Mint for several years now and look forward to every new (old) play.

I can’t believe I’d never heard of this fine play before the Mint produced it. The entire cast delivered a smashing show.

All of the actors were first-rate and the simplicity of the production was incredible. I shall certainly come back to the Mint if this is the kind of work they do.

The Mint is my most important discovery in the past year. I hope to attend your productions whenever I visit the city from now on.

Mint Theater is becoming the gold standard, as they keep ratcheting up each production on every level. it was one of the loveliest evenings we’d all spent in the Theater.

The greatest assets of the Mint are the discoveries made: the plays and playwrights that a true theatergoer should know.

Keep up the great works of the past that we would have no idea of if it were not for the wonderful Mint Theater

PROFESSOR BERNHARDI is considered by some to be Schnitzler’s most notable play. In it, he addresses the problem of anti-Semitism in Austria prior to the First World War. “Instead of preaching against it, Schnitzler, like a scientist, merely shows one case of its working itself out and lets us draw the moral conclusions. Yes, says Schnitzler, that is how men are. A brilliant Jewish doctor at the head of a hospital in Vienna is going to make enemies, who are going to fight with all the hypocrisy at their command until he is deposed. Professor Bernhardi, in daring to keep a priest from giving a patient the last sacraments, has taken on a foe that will destroy him.” (excerpted from the 1968 Times review of Vienna’s Burgtheater production at City Center).
