In comic, macabre fantasy Moskva, you'll meet a carnival of characters: lovers, mafia kingpins, drug dealers, hit-men, a crippled novelist, Pontius Pilate, Christ, and a variety of bewildered officials in Vladimir Putin's regime. Based on the Russian masterpiece The Master and Margarita, the story follows the devil and his entourage, who emerge from the shadows of the underworld and weave themselves into the absurd and brutal realities of today's Moscow. This colorful, musical piece is both contemporary and historical -- a tribute to people everywhere struggling against unjust governments. Learn More

Interesting mix of concepts. Connection to Ophelia/Hamlet not really apparent. Very short, less than an hour.
Quotes & Highlights
- "This is theater that's not easily accessible and is devilishly bleak at times, but it's not without shards of humor, and is relentlessly provocative and challenging under imaginative direction by Frédérique Michel." -- Lovel Estell III, LA Weekly
- "With few traditional theater points of reference to navigate by, her uncompromising journey is not for the intellectually incurious." -- Philip Brandes, Los Angeles Times
- "This funny yet brutal play needs the inventive mise-en-scene to support its fecundity of ideas amidst the tumult of its conflicting impulses. And don’t be afraid: It is OK, even purgative, to laugh." -- Myron Meisel, The Hollywood Reporter
