Mint puts grant into ‘Darkness’

Company finds funds for new drama

The Mint Theater Company has scored the 2007 Tony Randall Grant, a cool $100,000 to be put toward the org’s upcoming production of Leo Tolstoy’s little-seen tragedy “The Power of Darkness.”

Other grants from the Tony Randall Theatrical Fund will go to the Red Bull Theater, which gets $10,000 for a fall production of Christopher Marlowe’s “Edward II,” and $2,500 each for outdoor classics presenter Gorilla Repertory Company and downtown troupe Target Margin Theater.

Recipients were selected from more than 45 proposals by a committee of theater pros that included Jed Bernstein, Michael Cerveris, Jack Klugman, Cherry Jones and Marian Seldes.

Randall’s widow, Heather, who administers the fund, said of the 15-year-old Mint, “It’s a theater company that has been around long enough to show staying power, and they’ve really put the work in to grow.”

Written in 1886, “Darkness” centers on a group of impoverished peasants.

Last year the fund’s inaugural grant went to New York Theater Workshop, which used the money to produce Martha Clarke’s “KAOS” in the fall.
