The crocodile of my soul

The crocodile of my soul
Saint Petersburg Variety Theatre. Arkady Raikin, Bolshaya Konyushennaya 27

On September 21 at the Variety Theatre. Raikin premiere of "Crocodile My Soul", based on the stories of Anton Chekhov."If you are afraid of loneliness, don't marry" - this paradox of notebooks Chekhov is not familiar to any of the characters of the new show. All men and women, young and old - think the other will save them from boredom, meaninglessness and loneliness. All of them grab for each other, stick to each other, dance and fight. Carousel of narcissistic dandies, lovers, coquettes, moralists, matrons, fathers of families twists every minute of the action faster.

"The play is very different, - says Director Alexander Kladko. - As are the stories. They are colourful and dynamic, they have a lot of humor and youthful energy. Chekhov's choice for productions is a young theater artists. Stories are also chosen, in many ways, and solved them. I just removed the excess and help you to understand the intricacies of the genre. Somewhere Chekhonte "zachariae" in fact later Chekhov, and appears volume, depth. You get story at the verge mischievous "skit". How to coalesce within the performance these different genres of stories? Whether this fragmentation of the total face of the author? I hope so. This individual call me and the actors, and our entire team. Personally, I have nothing like this in my life did. I think, the audience of this Chekhov not seen."
