Mint to bow comedy duo

Johnston, Baker to star

The fall season at Off Broadway’s Mint Theater, the org dedicated to reviving forgotten plays from the past, will consist of two comedies, one toplined by Kristen Johnston and the other starring Jordan Baker (“Three Tall Women”).

Baker and husband Kevin Kilner head the cast of a fall production of Lennox Robinson’s 1933 play “Is Life Worth Living?” Plot revolves around a small Irish town affected by the arrival of a legit troupe devoted to “serious plays” by the likes of Chekhov, Ibsen and Strindberg. Mint a.d. Jonathan Bank directs the staging, which runs Aug. 19-Oct. 11 at the org’s midtown venue.

Next up is backstage comedy “So Help Me God!,” by Maurine Dallas Watkins, who wrote the play on which tuner “Chicago” is based. The 1929 backstage comedy will star Johnston as a stage luminary beset by an ambitious understudy.

Helmed by Martin Platt, “So Help Me God!” will play downtown’s Lucille Lortel Theater beginning Nov. 18.
