The Moscow New Drama Theatre is an unusual theatre. It resides at the outskirts of Moscow, but at that it has rather exquisite and complicated repertoire, where they have the modern plays, the classical time-tested ones, and unknown old plays as “The Jokers” by Ostrovsky or “The Cranks” by Voltaire. For 35 years it had been directed by famous and sturdy directors: Viktor Monyukov, Vitaly Lanskoy, Boris Lvov-Anokhin. Since 2001 it is Vyacheslav Dolgachev. Each time the theatre chose the nonstandard direction of development, presenting the unobvious dramaturgy to the spectators.
The opening night of the 35-th New Drama Theatre season was «Top Dogs, or The New Adult Games» by Urs Widmer. The artistic director Viacheslav Dolgachev tells us today about the his company and what they hold in stock for the audience in the near future.
