Recently I went to the Anton Chekhov Theater on the bright comedy "Carrot for the Emperor." Director Leonid Trushkin managed to create an interesting production with vivid unique characters. In the comedy of Jiri Gubach, a story is told about the life of Napoleon (Gennady Khazanov) imprisoned on the island, about how the once brave emperor lost all his greatness and was forced to "live" his last days in the company of two generals. But then she appears - a burning Corsican (Inga Oboldina) with a bright character ... and ... all the fun begins ... life on the island will definitely not be the same !!! The scenery is minimalistic, all the attention of the audience is focused on a brilliant acting. Inga Oboldina turned into a bright strong-willed woman who masterly knows how to make faces. Gennady Khazanov is a desperate emperor who has lost the meaning of life and has found him again. The Anton Chekhov Theater is able to make an incredible spectacular ending. I will not reveal the cards, but you will see a very effective and beautiful end. The performance turned out to be funny, touching and motivating. After the performance, a lot of thoughts appeared that you should not put off your life, sit in a cage (dungeon, apartment), and it's time to act. The next shows will be held on November 3 and 7.
I liked the performance. The actors are great. Very not comfortable selected room. The performance of the play takes place in the right, then in the left corners of the stage, so those who bought tickets to the amphitheater do not see exactly half of the performance. Metal safety pipes still interfere.
Were on performance 23.02.19. Yes, the performance itself is not notable for its masterpiece, but there is humor. We played Dobronravov in the lead role, and he was given a separate low bow, because if he had not, we would have left at once. I do not know how in the stalls, but it is impossible to sit in the amphitheater. For whom is the distance between the seats calculated? Even the miniature girls rested with their knees in front of them. Such actors are involved in this theater, and the theater itself is simply disrespect for the audience. Until the hall is altered, we’re not a foot in this theater. We will look for meetings with our favorite actors in another place.
Last week we went to the Chekhov Theater for the play “The Rescuer”. The play is based on the work of Canadian playwright Norma Foster "Johnny and Barry". The performance is very cheerful, bright. It is perfect for family viewing or going to the theater with friends! The play teaches you to love life and enjoy it no matter what the circumstances! Initially, Leonid Trushkin wanted to name the play “Do not be afraid of anything, Barry!”, But after the tower appeared in the scenery, the bright and memorable name “Rescuer” persistently stuck to the production. The scenery is very unexpectedly solved. So in the nursing home we see a playground: a slide, a swing and a lifeguard tower. It’s as if we find ourselves in such a small world, we understand that our whole life is just one big playground. And on the rescue tower, thirsty for salvation and quick changes, Barry is located. On the stage we see only three artists. In the role of Barry - such an indifferent old man, who has lost all taste for life and is slowly living out his years - Gennady Khazanov shines. So pathetic and boring in his gray tights, and so active and cheerful in a bright green suit. The role of Joni is performed by Fedor Dobronravov. An active young man living here and now. He knows how to enjoy life in spite of everything, in spite of all circumstances. But he hides one secret .... a deadly disease that is about to swallow him. The role of Rosie - the daughter of Barry performs Daria Makarova. Believe her tears, every emotion. This performance is very touching. It is about how important it is to love, how important it is to rejoice at every moment in spite of everything, how important it is to live every day as if it were the last ... and then ... once ... this is the most ill-fated tomorrow does not come ... There are a lot of funny scenes in the production. Incredibly fascinating to watch as Joni changes the character of Barry. As the once boring inhabitant of a nursing home begins to live again, rejoice, “fly”, dream. The genre of this performance can be described as tragic comedy. An incredibly touching scene in which you realize that Joni is no more ... winter has come, the swing is swinging in the wind, snow flakes are falling from the sky ... and Joni ... he never learns to play curling .. .. Strong cast. Interesting director finds and solutions! I recommend for viewing!
The performance is not bad, but to say that we were directly delighted - I can not, I saw it better. It looks easy, it goes without intermission, sometimes there is a feeling of tightness or anguish. Sometimes the main characters are not heard or very bad, although we were sitting close - the 7th row in the middle. Definitely I can not advise my friends, but there are no negative impressions. Khazanov is well done, he plays great! I liked the chief tax inspector))))
Were in the play 05.11.2017 Describe in one word - DEEPLY DEAL! G. Khazanov and F. Dobronravov-artists with a capital letter! Makarov D-for the plot :) There were boring moments, there were funny! Places Beletazh (it's a balcony and no matter how) with the right .... very unsuccessful, artists all the time went somewhere from the center of the stage for the merry-go-round and the sex of the play, we could not see anyone ... only heard-offended! Conclusion from the play-Live today and now! Live and enjoy every day !!!! I recommend the older generation!
The play was delayed for 35 minutes and all this time the spectators stood in the hall. The administration did not invite viewers into the hall, although it is more convenient to wait for people aged and disabled. Most of the people who came to the play are elderly. The performance is shrill. A genre designated as a comedy does not suit him at all. The actors are adorable. The performance is wise, the plot is predictable.
In general, there was a positive impression of the performance. H say that it was a masterpiece, but there was no desire to leave either :) But at the performance 6,10,17 Gennady Viktorovich Khazanov apparently had a cold, he was sometimes hardly heard. Long speeches were difficult. I want to get better soon and make the audience more happy.
The performance is simply stunning! Laughed and cried. Khazanov is simply incredible! So deep, so different, so thin. To be honest - it was quite unexpected to see him like this. And I just adore Oboldin. She is a brilliant actress. And the story itself, on the one hand, is piercing and touching, and on the other, homerically ridiculous. I took the whole family. And with joy I will go again with my friends.
Watched last season. Khazanov surprised with drama and performing talent - that's who honestly works! The play is touching, the direction is clear - how I love it when you do not have time to get bored. I came to my senses in the very finals, when everyone was already clapping. I felt disconsolate. And in the middle the whole hall laughed a lot. Maybe it was planned - still, a comedy. ))
