That's Not How
Mahler Died

Directed by Ryan Holsopple
Starring Frank Boudreaux, Ryan Holsopple and Lián Sifuentes

Multimedia theater group 31 Down presents a hauntingly hypnotic mellow drama; technology is hidden behind a sultry glimpse into a noir-styled tale of adultery, obsession and voyeurism.  Inspired by the real life affair between Gustav Mahler’s wife Alma Mahler (the famous personality who has been named the last femme-fatale) and the Bauhaus architect Walter Gropius, the play is set in the late 1950’s and finds private investigator Mike Sharpie encountering the same loneliness and preoccupations with death that marked the last year of composer Gustav Mahler’s Life.

The Brick is proud to announce this co-production of That’s Now How Mahler Died, a hit of the Ontological Hysteric-Theatre’s 2005 Summer Series, as an integral part of the theater’s 2005 Fall season.   Founded in 2001, 31 Down is a radio-transmission-based theater company based in Brooklyn.  Artistically, the vision of the company lies in the hybridization of modern with old technologies, creating original, interactive visual and audio devices as well as original scripts and music for its performances.  Their work spans the art and theater worlds, and has been shown at the New Museum and EXIT ART as well as The Kitchen, Free103 Gallery, OfficeOps and the Ontological.  

The show will run for six performances only: November 4 – November 19, Friday and Saturday at 8pm at The Brick Theater.  All tickets are $10, and reservations can be made by calling The Brick’s reservation line: 718-907-3457
