Darko Tresnjak revives Eugѐne Ionesco's classic absurdist work in an epic production.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Ionesco's The Killer was first performed in 1959 in Paris. Berenger (Michael Shannon), a cheerful, well-meaning everyman, discovers a "radiant city" near his dismal urban home, a perpetually sunny, impeccably clean place full of marvelous architecture and beautiful gardens. The one hitch: a serial murderer has been brazenly killing people there for so long that the authorities have given up trying to catch him.
