Pittsburgh Playwrights Theater presents Underneath the Lintel

 

 

 

 

"Would you know a miracle if you saw one?"

 

The Librarian in Glen Berger's Underneath The Lintel doesn't merely ponder this question, he is confronted by it – in the form of a library book returned 113 years overdue.

 

Randy Kovitz, as The Librarian, leads us through an existential detective story, an obsessive search for the library offender that takes him out of his orderly, insular world and on a globe-trotting, possibly quixotic quest. In the process, The Librarian discovers a string of "evidences," some dating back thousands of years, finding connections to mysteries and myths, past and present, as well as his own dormant spirit.
