Великий Gatsby


For THE GREAT GATSBY, TMB co-founders and principal artists, Tina Kronis and Richard Alger, bring their unique approach to theatricalizing this classic American novel. Using Alger’s new text translated into Russian, Kronis will direct Gorky Theatre actors and partner with its design and production team. This world premiere cross-cultural production is being made under the guidance of Gorky Drama Theatre’s Artistic Director, Efim Zveniatsky, co-produced by Vladimir Ferkelman, and made with the support of the United States Department of State. The world premiere was Oct. 5, and the show continues in the company’s repertoire.
