Bright, effective, stylish and laconic in the scenery performance. There are no new forms in it - this is practically a literal remake of the Lithuanian version of "The Seagull" of this director from 2013. Interaction with the audience before the start, the almost constant presence of actors on the stage, flirting with the audience in the course of the action, announcing the intermission Kostya - everything was and still is in the Lithuanian “The Seagull”. Frost (Arkadina), on which the performance essentially rests, plays its roles in an actorly way; Ustinova (Masha) and Vorozhtsov (Medvedenko). Lyubshin and Dobrovolskaya are beautiful, but they definitely have nothing to play there. Volunteer one more time at the same time they use in a standard role the disheveled, absurd, comical, tearful intonations of a fool with an unhappy fate. Lyubshin brings charm and old-fashionedness, but in general its role is insignificant. Duzhnikov-Dorn and Sytom-Shamraev also have nothing to play. Wernick and Andreeva are absolutely none. Andreeva is as mediocre as Nina, and Wernick, like Trigorin, is false to the core. Their joint scenes are as dull and uninteresting as possible; in these Nina and Trigorin, no outbreak of sympathy is found. Treplev performed by Kotrelev hysterically-malignant undergrowth, rather conditionally shown. For some reason, the actors start yelling foolishly, although there are no prerequisites for this. But the performance itself is still quite empty. "Empty ... scary ..." The screens in the Moscow Art Theater are not new, microphones, too, direct shooting along the way, too. I did not discover anything new for myself in the play, it was more like a passing performance, but it was not boring to watch. My balcony was rapidly empty, in the stalls after the intermission there were empty seats even in the front row. It’s definitely worth a look to decide for yourself. My rating is 6/10
Were at the premiere 02/28/2020. Unusual, not the right word! You expect half of the first action when the "real" performance begins, the actors change clothes and stop bearing the gag. Then you plunge and you realize that this is how it should be, and that is how it should be! Costumes and devices of the 21st century simply do not notice! The cast is beautiful. Replacements are not yet indicated even in the program. My favorite is Evgenia Dobrovolskaya. The role is not the main, BUT! Imagine that there are all 10 actors on the stage, someone pronounces an iconic monologue, dialogue, it doesn’t matter ..., all this is accompanied by screams and throwings on the stage, which in this production is harmonious and justified, while my eyes are focused only on her Eugenia, who is silent and brilliantly present! Paulina and Nina are similar, both are so-so actresses ... The ingenious Chekhov and the director did not fail here either, at the final monologue of Zarechnaya, I wept. It was a pity to Nina, Paulina’s husband was at least rich and famous, though old. They sat in the stalls, after the intermission, they counted ten empty chairs next to them. They didn’t look back, but there were a lot of spectators who left the action ... Is it strange for me to survive the first action and not stay on the second? !!!! There already Kostya in sneakers does not bother a drop! My performance rating is 10 out of 10.
Was at the play in May 2019 with friends. To say that they were shocked, stunned and nailed to chairs is to say nothing. The performance lasts almost 5 hours, we were sure that we would not sit and leave at intermission, but nothing of the kind! They watched in one breath and terribly regretted that everything had ended so quickly. Without exaggeration, a brilliant performance, everything is thought out to the smallest detail, the actors play at the highest level, even minor roles are played as the main ones. A powerful mix of Dostoevsky, hits of the 90s, the interiors of the nouveau riche, modern technology and the unsightly sides of life. Marina Zudina, Victor Verzhbitsky, Philip Yankovsky, Alexey Kravchenko and Igor Mirkurbanov out of competition, powerful roles. All other actors are also incredibly cool. The ending is not according to Dostoevsky, but for me the only true and correct. I think the writer himself would approve. Thanks!!! We’ll come many more times, too much to comprehend and notice more.
Thanks to the Moscow Art Theater Tabakov for all the performances of Grishkovets! “Libra” is a wonderful performance that is bright, funny, touching and kind, but individual moments, like the monologue of Zolotovitsky, tighten the heart and cause tears. Many important and vital topics are hidden behind ironic and amusing, at first glance, dialogues. Bravo to wonderful artists and a wonderful author-director for an exciting and humorous night spent with them in anticipation of a miracle :-)
Loved the Dreamer (Eugene Perevalov). My grandmother was good (Nina Gulyaeva), but I suspect that, due to her age, she played a lot of such old women and showed nothing new. Very ascetic and at the same time bulky scenery-bridges, which are almost never used. Actors are always pushing in the foreground. Why? The riddle. The performance is not bad, but not required.
Thanks to all the participants of the concert, but especially I bow to M. Brusnikina and A. Khovanskaya: the abyss of ideas where you can think of nothing seems impossible, for example, Troshin’s performance “The ceiling is ice ...” on the one hand, by Vysotsky’s voice, and on the other , I just wanted to shout “Romals, Chavela” or just gypsies, Wow, And then the Greek kondak performed by the same Troshin, here the sretensky choir definitely “has a rest”. I was still very pleased with the performance of my favorite Quartet "Live Sound". It is impossible to list everything. A special feature of the concert is that the performers do not leave the stage, everyone sings along. dance - in general, the full feeling that we are one company. And how beautiful, but without vulgar sparkles, without busting. Yes (maybe this is important for someone) before the concert, the sea of good quality wine is free, in general, as the youth says, atmospheric. But the main thing is that it is all native, very close. Thank you thank you thank you.
This concert was attended by the older generation of the family - two mothers, aunt and my husband. A wonderful concert - Marina Burusnikina, as always, masterfully put on this kind of concert, a different style of song, not boring, lively. Enjoyed it! Thanks.
We went to the play with the children, enjoyed the acting, it is difficult to distinguish someone from the cast. Each actor would like to say thanks for the excellent stage play: Dmitry Dyuzhev, Yana Gladkikh, Ksenia Lavrova-Glinka, Natalia Egorova, Nina Gulyaeva, Dmitry Nazarov, Vladimir Timofeev, Pavel Levkin, Eduard Chekmazov, Elena Lemeshko, Alena Khovanskaya, Dmitry. A low bow to the director, Marina Brusnikina, for an interesting interpretation of the novel. The guys watched the whole performance in one breath. Who was not, go for sure!
