Serious, difficult, ambiguous! Averin's game delights. Other actors of the play are also at altitude. For those who are accustomed to classical performances and do not want to watch anything else, is not desirable for viewing. I liked everything. A bit sad at the end.
Wonderful performance! For those who did not live in their parents, it gives an opportunity to laugh, and for those who were in a similar situation, to remember all this with humor. Great game of actors, especially older ones. A pleasant evening is provided!
Evening 02.02.2019. - full house! For lovers of French vaudeville - this is an excellent option! A bit vulgar in French, for the younger generation of 20-30 year-olds, it is not always funny, but the older generation of spectators from 45 years old definitely should go to laugh heartily and get real pleasure from the great game of your favorite actors.
BRAVO!!!!! Were at the performance 01/31/2018 got great pleasure from the performance. The game of actors deserves a special thanks, which confirmed the squall of applause. As soon as the TV version appears, I download to my home film library.
Wonderful staging. The performance is interesting - multi-layered and multi-faceted: the theater scene echoes the backstage, scenes from the film - with the film set, film actions alternate with brilliant verbal duels of actresses, the final meeting of the heroines follows the Oscar presentation. This gives the performance dynamics, and a small stage space draws the viewer into action from the first second. Despite the small stage with its limited technical capabilities, the production is rich in interesting scenery (even simple light projections look spectacular) and props that contribute, along with musical accompaniment, to creating the necessary atmosphere - whether it be scenes from the film “in the spirit of Hitchcock”, the hospital ward, Oscar presentation, theater dressing room - the public is instantly included in the events. The performance is skillfully and competently built: the leading actors Alyona Yakovleva and Marina Ilyina throughout the whole period balance between funny and tragic things that fill the fate of the actor. Both that, and another sounds in full force, forcing the viewer to laugh and empathize. Verbal duels of actresses are brilliant, monologues are shrill and frank. We should also mention the amazing costumes of Victoria Sevryukova - stylishly and expressively dressed heroines attract the eye from the first minute: elegant dresses in the style of the 50s – 60s, luxurious hats, spectacular black and red lace outfits of the characters of the “bloody” movie, chic evening ones the costumes of the guests of the main Hollywood ceremony cannot but arouse the admiration of the audience. You get aesthetic pleasure from everything: from a wonderful performance, chic costumes, spectacular scenery, an interesting plot and skillfully built action!
At the performance went company. Start a little wary. But then everything fell into place. The inclusion of the Beatles songs into the performance is quite consonant with the plot, although they are from Shakespeare and from different eras. The plot and the game of actors captured by the minute. Perhaps someone will seem somewhat extravagant such a reading of the image of Malvolio, but, in general, the whole of our company really liked the performance. ABOUT
I was at this performance 16 years ago (Rukhmanov, Lagutin, Karpunina, and others) and since then I dreamed all these years to visit it again. And only now, when the child has grown up, my dream has come true - I just wanted to go with her. And it so happened that we got out not only together, but composed of several generations: 11 years, 40, 50 and 70. We all have six different quantities and quality of the performances seen earlier, but here everyone agreed together: REAL PLEASURE OF THEATER. At the same time, all six liked the most different characters :))) Daughter watches about two dozen with a tail of performances a year, and if, after a performance in a new work for her, she says: "Mom, I want to read it," I think this is the highest praise what you see. But to hook the younger generation is not so easy. I wish that we would continue to go to such performances that awaken curiosity in children and adults, the desire to learn, understand deeper, compare, make the love of reading and the theater only stronger. I can not wait for this performance for another 16 years. We will be back! PS: Viktor Ilyich Rukhmanov, who plays the role of the Teacher, has been playing in the Theater of Satire for over 60 years. I am happy not only to see him again in good health in this performance, but also that my family found him playing a funny old man, yes, that one from several scenes, including from the scene on the bridge. If the actors with such experience play the role in this way, then this role should be exactly that! Where did someone take in disrespect for the elderly in the scene, played by the actor at the age of 88 years! Does he not know how to play? !!! To find fault with the scene of fright from a shot in this performance is the same as finding fault with the French for "Gargantua and Pantagruel."
