Vienna's prestigious Burgtheater is reacting to the current pariah status of Austrian President Kurt Waldheim. Director Claus Peymann, a West German, said Wednesday that the Burgtheater's four productions for the 1987-88 season will deal with Austria's past--a touchy subject that stirs controversy over Waldheim's wartime activities. Among the productions: "March 13th, 1938," a theatrical treatment by Uwe Jens Jensens of Austrian history from the Anschluss (merger with Nazi Germany) to the present day, and "The Angel's Fall," a play on Nazi history by East German Franz Fuehmann.
