New dates and extra performances for LOVE HURTS IN TINDER TIMES at the Schaubühne in Berlin

April - Mai: Spring has finally arrived, LOVE is in the air, here there and everywhere. And in that occasion the audience success LOVE HURTS IN TINDER TIMES will be performed an extra couple of times from April 29 - 1 Mai. So for all of you who has tried to get tickets to this constantly sold out show, here is another chance! Tickets for the extra performances will be available for sale any day now.

The human being is an abyss. Okay. Fine. Let’s jump right in. Headlong into this mess of longings, anxieties, biological and social determinations. Deeply (gender) troubled and deeply in need of love. But – Look out! Beware! – LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD and LOVE IS BLINDNESS and LOVE IS A CATASTROPHE and, anyway: LOVE HURTS. At least upon that, pop culture is agreed.
