Denver’s Bunkport Theater, “A Happy Ending,” praise from Henry Lowenstein

Image

Dear Theatre Friends,
I rarely comment on currently running productions but will make an exception with “A Happy End” at the Buntport Theatre. Set in 1932 Berlin, it tells the story of a Jewish physicist and his family as they vacillate in face of the coming Nazi threat. Should they leave everything behind or might it all be a passing phase that will soon blow over?
I was seven years old in Berlin in 1932 when I heard the very same discussions as many family friends decided to leave Germany. It became my quick lesson in survival and the end of being a child.  My mother saw the coming danger whereas my father, who had been highly decorated for his service as an Army doctor during all four years of World War One, would not believe that his  beloved Germany could allow Hitler to rule for any length of time.
Iddo Netanyahu’s play brilliantly catches the conflicting emotions of the time, Ami Dayan’s direction is eerily reminiscent of Erwin Piscator’s 1920’s Epic Drama style and the cast is terrific.
