The European premiere of "Rubbish, the City and Death," a play by the late German film maker Rainer Werner Fassbinder, was canceled Wednesday after protesters stormed the stage of Rotterdam's Lantaren Theater, Reuters news service reported. The protesters complained that the play about a Jewish real estate investor's exploitation of a German prostitute would promote anti-Semitism. The play has been banned in other European countries, but did have a brief run in New York. The theater's manager--who told the audience to leave rather than clash with protesters--said he plans to meet with Jewish leaders before proceeding with two more scheduled performances.
