Theatre plays by American playwrights and Francophone plays on Romanian stages

With the coming of spring, theatre performances too are blossoming both in Bucharest and elsewhere in the country. ‘Biloxi Blues’ (photo), one of the most successful plays by American playwright Neil Simon, will have its formal premiere at the Atelier Hall of the Bucharest National Theatre March 29, at 8 pm, part of the “Open Doors” program. Starring Theatre Institute graduates from the Mircea Rusu’s acting class, ‘Biloxi Blues’ offers substantial parts to young hard-driving actors.“Teatrul Mic” will be the venue March 31 for the performance of ‘Mrs. Warren’s Profession’ by George Bernard Show, marking the directorial debut of actor Claudiu Istodor. The performance, ‘an unpleasant comedy’, as the author himself described it, centres on the relationship between Mrs. Kitty Warren, played by Maia Morgenstern, the administrator of a not-exactly-clean business, and her daughter, Vivie (Ilinca Manolache), a afresh Math graduate of Harvard. The caustic humour and deft intuition of dialogues pits the mother and the daughter against each other as a means of unveiling the hypocrisy and decadence of the so-called bon ton society.Odeon Theatre will stage the first performance of “C.F.R. – The Cometh, the child and the dog” by Alexandru Dabija, Music by Ada Milea and video projections, Cinty Ionescu. The show is based on texts by Ion Luca Caragiale. The World Theatre Day provides an opportunity for Metropolis and the UNTEATRU independent theatre to launch the cultural program “Independents’ Day at Metropolis Theatre”, to make its debut tomorrow with two performances: at 7 pm, “Autobahn”, an exquisite  comedy adapted after Neil LaBute, and at 8.30, “The Beautiful Journey of the Panda Bears” by Matei Visniec.Writer Matei Visniec is due to attend, today and tomorrow, some Francophone Day-dedicated events in his native town of Radauti, and Suceava, as well as  the musical “The City with a single inhabitant” staged by the Delagare troupe of Paris, based on his texts. The exhibition  “Album with applauds” will also open today, containing several posters  of theatrical performances of his plays.
