Nina Hoss, the great German star of the Christian Petzold films Jerichow, Barbara, and Phoenix, is at St. Ann’s Warehouse in RETURNING TO REIMS, a dramatic adaptation of Didier Eribon’s “remarkable book of sociological inquiry and critical theory.”*
Eribon’s memoir of his return to his childhood home, where he “discovers that the left-wing and liberal middle-class have abandoned the working-class, and workers are running into the arms of the right-wing National Front,” is directed for the stage by Thomas Ostermeier.**
RETURNING TO REIMS , through February 25.
ST. ANN’S WAREHOUSE, 45 Water Street, Brooklyn.
