The play «Shadow»

The play «Shadow»

Nikolai Pavlovich is devoted to Akimov

"Shadow" - the play-legend does not leave the playbill of the Comedy Theater for more than 70 years. Different director's versions, star roles, always the actual irony of the text ... Every year the theater opens its season "Shadow" - in memory of Nikolai Akimov, specially for which Eugene Schwartz wrote his ever-young play. In one fabulous country, whose inhabitants are forced to lead a completely uninhabited life - cannibals work as journalists and appraisers in the city pawnshop, and the "girl who stepped on bread" made a career as a pop star, the Scientist comes to make her residents happy. However, she faces her own insidious Shadow, who hastens to take his place - in the heart of the Princess - and get rid of her master. The irony and grotesque, the sinister atmosphere of the carnival - all this in the spectacular performance of Tatiana Kazakova.
