The case of Joseph Fritzl, who abused and imprisoned his daughter, incited disgust and revulsion the world over. Yet it’s now the basis of a “comedy” premiering tonight. The controversial drama is being staged in an independent theatre in Vienna, and it has drawn much protest—the theatre has been vandalized, and the stage door was super-glued shut. Police are guarding the show since the star and director, Hubsi Kramar, has received death threats. “The media hunt is beginning to have an effect,” Kramar said. “It will be dangerous for all involved.” Ticket’s for this evening’s performance are already sold out.
