Underneath the Lintel

Paul Morella as The Librarian Chris Banks
Performance Dates

A Dutch Librarian, a returned library book that is 113 years overdue and the obsession to find its owner. A clue scribbled in the margin, an unclaimed dry-cleaning ticket, tickets to the Peking Opera, a love letter written in Yiddish, and why does that French opera, Les Miserables, keep appearing? Multiple clues and a world-wide search that ultimately decode the meaning of life. And a plant, the Zebrina Pendula, that may hold the ultimate clue. A metaphysical detective story that is funny and fierce, quirky and smart. Ran over 450 performances off Broadway and named one of the Top Ten Plays of the Year, Time Out NY. Produced in over 55 cities and in 8 countries, and now Alexandria, VA. Featuring Paul Morella as The Librarian.
