This performance continues the course of the New Drama Theatre to some exclusiveness of its repertoire (“Wealthy brides” is not the most often play for Moscow stages). And that is more than actual principle point in the present theatre situation.
Text without any changes (excepting little cuts), and been deprived of usual decoratively-everyday props absolutely doesn’t grate on ears with its old-fashionedness, whereas modernity began to speak in a qualitative literary style without denying itself. And if such synthesis is often perceived at a stretch, in “Wealthy brides”, the New Drama Theatre, you don” feel it.
This performance has a big potential for developing in a field of psychological links related to changes of situations and treating of characters to each other and to themselves. And then not only the result but the way the actors did to it will be seen. And in general, “Wealthy brides” is seeing very lightly and wins all hearts with its liveliness and ingenuousness.
