Flirtation: Arthur Schnitzler's Gripping Romantic Drama
TBG Mainstage Theater, aka The Barrow Group Theatre (312 West 36th Street, 3rd floor New York City, NY 10018)
Since it was written in 1895, Arthur Schnitzler's play Flirtation has inspired a German language film by Max Ophüls and an English play by Tom Stoppard. Now Marvell Rep's co-founder Lenny Leibowitz directs Carl Mueller's translation of the original text. Set in Vienna at the end of the 19th century, dapper young Fritz is crushed when his married lover ends their affair. On a lark, Fritz's buddy introduces him to a working class girl, thinking a break from wealthy adulteresses might do him good. However, few would predict the deep connection that would form between Fitz and Christine, a lovely and innocent milliner, much less the high price the two would pay for their love. Marvell Rep, named a "sign of hope" for New York theater by The Village Voice, presents this romantic drama as a part of their series celebrating the genius of fin de siècle Vienna.
