Moscow Drama Theater "MODERN"

Feedbacks from viewers
Ol`ga was 23 august on "At the bottom" M. Gorky

For 1 hour 40 minutes, Yuri Grymov portrayed an amazing and nagging piercing version of "At the Bottom". The performance is bright in style. The darkened space of the scene flashes with juicy spots, highlighting the main thing at this particular moment. Yes, we already know this technique, this kind of directorial style, but again and again we are surprised at the effect when the picture is instantly recorded in memory and then lives there for a long time, appearing before our eyes again and again. So what is unexpected in this performance? The idea of timelessness is unexpected. Heroes, as was announced before the start of the performance, are our contemporaries. Stylish clothes, expensive accessories, leather furniture, waiters offering food and drinks. All this would seem to be confusing, and the authors even insured themselves by making plates with the names of the heroes, but these fears are superfluous. And it’s even amazing how the original author’s text is harmonious and absolutely natural in relation to modern realities! From the first minutes it’s clear who is who. From the very first minutes, my heart breaks with sympathy and sympathy for everyone. I don’t even know if I ever had such a strong sympathy for each of the heroes of this play .. Why? Why did I just now want to hug everyone? Is it only because they are outwardly the same as me with these fashionable clothes and phones? After all, in fact, only the attributes change, and people from year to year, from century to century live all the same, they also love, suffer and die. Or because the creators of the performance managed to highlight the main thing in each, and this main thing was not that they all fell so low that they were “at the bottom” of society, but that even at the bottom they are all people, inside each of Which own tragedy and own universe? A person cowering in pain and loneliness is equally vulnerable both on the dirty basement floor and on a leather sofa. And there is no difference than drowning despair with elite alcohol or the cheapest vodka, if after a minute you still have a wasteland-noose ... And, perhaps, against the background of towers pumping oil and pleasures like massage, this pain is even more acute, because it is more difficult to accept and explain .. Even during the nods, I tried to determine for myself which of the characters hooked the most? Satin (Vladimir Levashev) with his aristocracy and the brightest facial expressions, whose monologue struck to goosebumps? Or Ashes (Victor Potapeshkin)? Whose sarcasm was so quickly replaced by pure and almost childish naivety, that I wanted to save him first of all, and maybe Vasilisa (Nadezhda Menshova)? After all, it was she who caused the strongest negative emotions? And this despite the fact that I perfectly understood the reason for all her words and actions. Or Actor (Konstantin Konushkin)? With his vulnerability and naive belief in what can still be changed? However, honestly, all the same, Luka (Alexander Tolmachev). That's what I admired every minute of his stay on stage! Bravo! The image is ambiguous, but how beautiful in essence! And the finale ... In the finale, I almost prayed that they would at least slightly tighten it, to prolong, extend this admiration for what is happening on the stage, otherwise the performance passed so swiftly that I desperately wanted it to be just the end of the first act ... go to the theater! Perhaps you, like me, when you return home, re-read the play again, already seeing the heroes exactly as they saw him in the Modern Theater

Uliya was 18 february on Journey of the little prince

The performance is excellent. Were with children 4.5 years, 6 and 8 years. Everyone liked it. For the younger ones, it is a bit hard to listen to the story in some places (it gets boring, but not for long). In general, everything is super: actors and scenery. Small cozy room.

Anna was 07 january on Matryoshki on the roundness of the earth

Theater “Modern” was for me the discovery of this season. Here is an incredibly pleasant atmosphere: large windows, live music during the intermission and before the performance, a rest room in which it is pleasant to sit and read books. And, of course, the dress code: all beautiful and elegant. The choice of the performance, of course, was also not accidental. I have already seen several productions of Grymov, it is always something enchanting. “Nested dolls on the roundness of the earth” is a tragicomedy. The performance was very vital. Such different destinies of heroines, connected only with a great desire to help your loved ones and make this world a little better. The author wished to remain incognito. There are a lot of clever thoughts in the performance: about life, about politics, about love. The performance can be disassembled by quotations. "Just think, if there are armed conflicts around every oil rig, then what will be around the perpetual motion ..... eternal war." "We managed to inspire people, the Earth is on four elephants .... this is of course complete nonsense ... but it allowed to postpone the supply of syphilis and tobacco from Latin America for 400 years." "It is impossible to invent the perpetual motion, but it can be stolen." Yury Grymov here is both a director, a set designer, a choreographer, a lighting designer, and the selection of music is also his work. Do not get tired to admire the work of this man! He knows how to create spectacular performances, they are just fun to watch. I really liked the music. Light, as always, is perfect! Clear lines, bright colors. He is a full-fledged character of the performance, helps to create unique effects. My favorite, of course, was Hermes (Alexander Gorelov). His image was perfect from appearance on stage to bows. Bright, comedic, exalts its divinity. Deity, and drinks whiskey and is ill for Juventus. Have you met such an image? Me not. Never. Nested dolls: Lika Nifontova, Maria Orlova and Nadezhda Menshova - I was also very impressed. They are so touching, vulnerable. You believe their stories. Feel how they worry about their loved ones. The performance is very strong. He touches to the depths of the soul, for a long time you think about him .... Thanks to the Modern Theater for a great evening!

Maksim was 12 november on "At the bottom" M. Gorky

I am not a fan of M. Gorky's creative work, I will say more “At the bottom” I never loved, because I consider it a very hard work. I want to say thank you to Yury Grymov, because in order to put such a work in such an unusual form and to save the text of the original source, you must have tremendous talent and courage. I like it. See for sure. There is something to discuss after the performance. Luka is beautiful, according to the Prince there are questions. Once again, thank you all, participated in the production for the pleasure of viewing.

Mariya was 19 december on Matryoshki on the roundness of the earth

For the first time I watched the play by Yuri Grymov. It was a "lyrical comedy" "Matryoshka on the roundness of the Earth." Well, I would argue with the creators about the genre, of course. It's not a comedy. But the performance is uniquely interesting. The modern spectator is so spoiled by bright scenography and all sorts of spectacular chips that sometimes lazy to look into yourself, think, contemplate. Here the story is clearly meaningful. Decorations, music, light, costumes do not beat, but complement. Stunning actress Matryoshka: Lika Nifontova, Nadezhda Menchova, Maria Orlova. In the end, everyone is waving to their mothers and crying. Probably, this is more a woman's play, for 30+

Anastasiya was 03 december on Journey of the little prince

A fine performance for the young spectators and their parents. I do not quite understand the age limit: my child is 6 years old, we have not read a fairy tale yet, but the play was absolutely affordable for him. I have never had to explain something, the plot, the words of the Little Prince, the moral of the story - everything is as clear as it is clear. The final songs of the production - like echoes from my childhood, could not hold back tears, in the hall many mothers bowed to their children .. Incredible feelings, the atmosphere from childhood, full of love, sincerity and desire to live. Thanks a lot to the theater and actors!

Elena was 02 march on Journey of the little prince

I liked it very much, especially the child (9years old). Interesting scenery.

Viktoriya was 25 may on Journey of the little prince

The play was very popular both for adults and children. The actors are wonderful. Very cozy atmosphere. Thank you!

Valentina was 15 december on Journey of the little prince

This performance is recommended for children from 9 to 13 years, but if the child is prepared, tell him about this work or even read it, it is quite understandable for children 7-8 years old. A very good performance, in which many young and talented actors are involved. Given the specifics of this theater, its audience (and it is known to be small), the audience in this performance is actively involved, which is wonderful for the children's audience. Together with the actors young spectators live the journey of the Little Prince, together with him experiencing, sympathizing and marveling. They experience a wide variety of emotions. I was very impressed by the impulse of one of the young spectators, who, feeling out, ran out and hugged the little prince. I think it was unexpected for a young actor, but very nice. This is not the best gratitude!

Visitor was 23 april on Dance. A. Strindberg

Drama is felt in the scenery, in costumes, in dialogue and intonation, but still in the horizon of family relationships of the main characters there will be and the sun will remain. The performance is interesting to its trio of actors. Come, be sure and do not regret, I assure you !!

Elena was 10 may on Three pigs and a gray wolf

Thank you! A wonderful performance, I liked both my 4 year old daughter and my parents!

Mariya was 16 may on Dance. A. Strindberg

Strong, frank, relevant! For an hour and a half climbed into the soul and shook it ... Well played, the actors skillfully infected their emotions, excellent scenery and the theater itself made a wonderful first impression! I will come again

Elena was 06 december on Dance. A. Strindberg

The production of the popular play in honor of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Maxim Gorky is intended to become one of the most intriguing events of this summer. The performance not only preserves all the themes and problems touched upon by the author, but also surprises with the unexpected decision of images, with a dynamic plot, dramatic action, musical design and subtle psychologism.

In the play, the author's text will sound unchanged, as in all previous productions of the artistic director of the theater Yuri Grymov ("Brave New World", "Matryoshki on the Roundness of the Earth", "Julius Caesar", "Lost World").
