But if you hit Berlin and speak German, I encourage you to see "Mutter Courage und ihre Kinder" in the Berliner Ensemble.
I never thought a play carried, mostly, by a little old lady and an actress playing her mute daughter could become something so powerful. It started out a bit slow, but after 2-3 scenes, Mother Courage's presence filled the stage and I was truly gripped by the play. Really liked the costuming etc choices they'd made for this play!
