Der Boxer - Theater in der Josefstadt
Brutal. Hard. Magnificent. That's the short definition of this production. A mistake to miss it. See it if you possibly can. (European Cultural News)
Playwright Felix Mitterer presents a strong script. Stephanie Mohr's direction is sensitive and intelligent . In the lead role Gregor Bloeb literally fights for his life. An unforgettable play. (ORF)
I went to see it last night. What can I say? I can only say I was completely knocked out by all aspects of the performance.
The boxer is a man called Johann 'Rukeli' Trollmann. Never heard of him? I regret to say I hadn't either. But now I have. And I won't forget him in a hurry.
