The violent controversy surrounding the play of Mandragoras written by the great thinker, philosopher, politician and poet Niccolo Machiavelli began long ago, nearly five hundred years ago, in 1518, when this work was published. Written in the style of medieval farce, with sharp satire and merciless vestments of everyday life, morality and morals, a play that does not spare the eyes and ears of the Puritans, the hypocrites, and all sorts of "holy" - she had the effect of a bomb exploding in society. Since then, the theatrical history of the productions of Mandragora has been extremely scandalous. The performance of the famous Moscow director Konstantin Bogomolov called "The Love Potion" did not become an exception here, and every time he saw the audience who saw him in two camps - active supporters and ardent opponents. Adapted to the acute problems and issues of today, built on the principle of directly direct communication of artists with the audience, the play "The Love Potion" really does not leave anyone indifferent. And this is its most valuable quality. It is worth adding that the performance is categorically contraindicated to viewers without a healthy sense of humor, with a bad mood, as well as adherents of the Stanislavsky system.
"If it's love, you have to go to the end, do not be afraid of even death."
The young man saw in Florence a girl who is most beautiful.
But she is married to a jealous old man. Without it, she's out of the house - nowhere.
But there was an inveterate rogue who was ready to help the lover.
The old man dreams of an heir. It is necessary to introduce him to a doctor who will help a lover to see a beautiful woman.
The trick was a success. The doctor completely froze the old man's head. He invented an incredible story about a love potion and a stranger who must guard his wife at night.
Now the young man can spend one night alone with the beautiful Italian!
Will he like the old man's young wife?
An ingenious farce with wonderful acting improvisations.
"It is better to be courageous than cautious, because fate is a woman".
“ Amazing light, tickling, correct performance. Thanks to everyone who created it. 2.5 hours of healthy laughter and positive emotions. I recommend to all.
“ I recommend this performance! Maria Aronova and Mikhail Polizeymako are an amazing couple! Laughing up to the colic in the stomach)) this is the best performance in order to escape from the autumnal grayness! BRAVO!
“ Years 9 I wanted to go to this performance, reading reviews enthusiastic viewers of those years! And finally, on March 31, 2015 we finally remembered this performance and took tickets without even reading the last reviews .... We thought that once the play has been on the stage for 10 years, the tickets are bought up and people are going, so the play is really Good! But we did not expect this! The plot - no, a complete improvisation for the rage of the day! The script can be seen every day with news from the newsline: in Turkey, the light was turned off, the cost of a barrel of oil, the cost of tickets, cars, etc.! Such muzhduzboichik suits only for corporate, 30 minutes, joked - laughed, famous actors, drank - had a snack, it's easy and funny. But we are going to the theater for art, for a spectacle, and here - there is nothing .... It's a pity for my time and money spent. Very weak! No way!
