*Sidney Bechet Killed a Man

Written by Stuart Flack
Directed by Sandy Shinner
January 17 – February 23, 1997


Dr. Philip Litwin is a supremely confident, world-class cardiac surgeon who compares his skill and powers of concentration to those of jazz great, Sidney Bechet. Like saxophonist Bechet, Litwin will kill a man. In fact, one night, Litwin dreams that the hearts of each of his 24,000 patients stop beating in the same instant.
