You need to know the story. Convenient and uncomfortable. About war without embellishment. About repression, genocide, occupation, and discipline and price for its non-fulfillment, love and, of course, Victory. It is difficult to watch for those who do not recognize the real truth about the war, which was. Each performance will leave an indelible impression. It will be very useful for the children, because it touches such topics as discipline and responsibility, honor and courage, loyalty and betrayal, heroism and cowardice .... The play contains all the bright events of that time, known and hushed up. Songs of the war years and poems by authors who became famous after the war, such as Ion Degen, will be performed. Hike adults is welcome, because the younger generation knows less about the war, and you will have something to discuss and explain.
I really liked the performance! Touching, vital, truthful .... The actors did not play, but we, the audience, lived on the stage together with them! The plot is quite dynamic, but it will probably be more interesting to those who are 35 and above, although the youth applauded heartily! ... I recommend for viewing!
In the center of the performance, the heroine of Olga Bogdanova, Polina, is a middle-aged and lonely woman, despite her loving son. Yes, she feels lonely and afraid of this loneliness. He is so afraid that he tortures his son for years trying to subordinate his life to himself. She desperately wants every minute to be present in his life, to play a major role in it. The husband died early, the career of an actress remained a pipe dream. And now the son, for many years the center of her universe, suddenly took and got married! But Pauline is one of those who just won't give up! So she arranges one concert after another! By investing in them all their remarkable strength and talent. Moreover, after each concert Sergey, Polina’s son (Timur Eremeyev) will certainly run to Mom’s, which greatly upsets his wife (Olga Gerasimova). Even from America she will bring a burning Mexican Carlos (Ilya Baranov) symbolic bridge to the new life. I hope, already happy and joyful for everyone! Bravo, Olga Bogdanova!
The original production, somewhat different interpretation of the plot from the Lenkom "Aquitaine lioness." Strong are all the actors, except Chursina L .. Her diction is no, no power, spoiled the whole play. Very good Sergei Kolesnikov, already the second performance with his participation, sileen.
To the disgusting staging of V. Eremin does not even fit the definition of "performance"! An indefatigable, unintelligible act where everything is in line with the modern "liberal-democratic" paradigm of filing our Soviet period of history: the "innocent" deserters who have been shot, the "good" soldiers and officers who are not obeying the order, and sending them to death, threatening and delivering on them " bad ", drunkenness, slovenliness," horrors "of Stalin's repressions, traitors and beautiful, Nordic Germans ... There is not only the Great Patriotic War itself! There is no heroic deed of the people and the army, merged into a single powerful organism! It's a shame for actors of the older generation, who are known for their excellent game, participating in this low-grade trampoline. Young actors (with rare exceptions) are not that "overplayed", but simply twisted as animators from a cheap Turkish hotel! Bezalannym directors can even be advised to look at the wonderful films "Rise" and "Zhenya, Zhenechka and ...", and just make them a tracing-paper, it's a pity that there was not enough consideration for this ,,, Everything left from the second branch: from the young pupils of the military institute, to well-deserved, gray-haired colonels from the ground ... The only ray of light is waiting for the end-the appearance on the stage of Alexander Alekseevich Petrov, the oldest theater actor who passed all the hardships of the war veteran! His short monologue sounds like a wise farewell to the descendants of a living witness of a great era, an old soldier who gave us the world! Summary - this questionable quality production stands alone in the repertoire of the beloved theater, it is unpleasant that the spectators are going to this pseudo-patriotic, pseudo-historical dramatization in the hope of seeing a bright play by the Victory Day, spending budget funds ...
The production itself was not impressed (the storyline of the work itself is very banal), but the actors' play is simply gorgeous. The first part is very boring, even tended to sleep. In general, it was pleasant, in the main the performance is drawn by actors with their high professionalism, good scenery, a large number of actors and extras. I disappointed the half-empty hall.
A wonderful performance. We went with my mother, this is the third performance in this theater, which we went to. The first was - "Playing on the keys of the soul." In the play "Eleanor and her Men" eats where to laugh, there is where to think about the eternal and the nature of man. I like that. Everyone played great!
A wonderful play of actors, beautiful scenery. We received great pleasure. Olga Bogdanova is gorgeous, they opened it in a new way. Separate scenes are simply delighted with their directorial development and playing all the artists on stage. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PLEASURE,
03/14/2012 were at the play "Elinor and Her Men" and, as always, the Theater of the Russian Army did not disappoint. It's not a game - it's living heroes' lives !! This is all the more tangible when the audience is small and the actors are there. Sergei Kolesnikov (I see him no longer in the first performance, in fact, this time it was on him) - a talented actor! Thank you!
