What’s on in St Petersburg?

Monday 16 June 2008

Andrew popped over to St Petersburg last weekend to check out what was on. Not to actually see anything, obviously – just to look at the posters.

This one caught his attention. It seems to have 10 production photographs in it which is quite an achievement in a poster. It’s probably a farce judging by the buttocks. And it would seem to feature the cast taking their curtain call. All most curious.

Perhaps some day all theatre posters will look like this:

No. 13

At a guess, this was Vladimir Mashkov’s staging of Ray Cooney’s popular comedy No. 13 starring Avangard Leontyev and Yevgeny Mironov at the Chekhov Moscow Art Theater.

But what a lot of words! Translation please, Mr Morrison.
