"A comedy about HOW THE BANK was robbed"
The best remedy for the autumn blues is "A comedy about HOW THE BANK was robbed". This is a theatrical parody of the Hollywood blockbusters Ocean's Eleven, Mission Impossible, the Police Academy comedy and even Tarantino's films! The performance takes place on land, on water and in the air, and even rotates 90 degrees. The performance will appeal to everyone who loves cinema, and will pleasantly surprise fans of musical theater. But the most interesting thing is that it will be highly appreciated by connoisseurs of drama theater.

An inspiring love story. Firstly, this is a super-relevant story about the search for a soul mate in a huge metropolis. You will like the closeness to reality, atypical for this genre - the heroes of this production have the same problems and joys as you. Secondly, "First Date" takes place in an unusual space - in the foyer of the MDM theater, or rather in a New York bar, which is built here for authenticity. Spectators can order snacks, a glass of champagne and completely immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the performance. This format is called site-specific and has never been seen before in the Broadway version of the play. Muscovites will definitely like the story from the scriptwriter of the TV series "Gossip Girl" and the authors of Disney. Stars of musicals starring: Pavel Lyovkin, Yulia Iva, Stanislav Belyaev, Anna Glaube, Oleg Savtsov, Alexey Bobrov, Anna Guchenkova, Alexey Sekirin and others.

The heroes of the play "Utopia" are simple inhabitants of the hinterland, who have almost no hope left. There was only "Utopia" - an old, once burnt-out cafe, which suddenly needed to be revived by a certain businessman from Moscow. Yes, to revive so that "Utopia" was the same, exactly the same as in the 90s: with bad beer and gouge out the interior. “But we can do better!”, The heroes who are just starting to spread their wings argue. “Better yet, don’t, it’s necessary - as it was,” the mysterious owner interrupts their initiative, unbuckling the money.
Have we changed since the 90s, is it possible today to go back - these are the questions asked by the creators of the play. The production is based on a new play by Mikhail Durnenkov.

Anniversary concert "Children of Picasso"
Twenty years ago, the first full-length album of this group, "Month of Smiles", came out to the delight of the press, it sold very well, and the group was called the hope of a new domestic rock, but in the middle of the 2000s, the "children" moved to Budapest. And now the whole group is rehearsing a new program dedicated to its 20th anniversary. Gaya Harutyunyan has recorded several solo tracks, rethinking the tradition of Russian romance. It is safe to say that “Children of Picasso” are returning to the Russian stage. One of the most anticipated concerts.

What are you afraid of? End of the world? Poltergeist? Apple men?
The play "Pillow Man" is the basis of our theatrical experiment. We will tell scary tales and talk about our own fears, and you can join us in the process, or ask us to stop if at some point you become unbearably scared. The Irish playwright Martin McDonagh is often said to be popular in Russia because the characters and events in his plays are reminiscent of our realities. We suggest you check if this is so.

Concert of the duet "Korolev-Popova"
Korolev-Popova is a musical and poetic duet between Vadik Korolev (word, OQJAV) and Evgenia Popova (music, Pedro y Juan, Evgeny Grinko). The concert at the Voznesensky Center is dedicated to the release of the new micro-album "Karate". Popova is rapidly gaining minimalist-composer momentum, like a hurricane that has swirled a thick red cap with Totoshka. While Korolev has not written anything normal for a long time and has been using texts from three years ago. Nevertheless, together they create a sense of harmony, or the so-called in the lobbies, in narrow circles and behind the backs of the guys - the balance of the small Finno-Ugric ethnic group. Album "Karate" is a grotesque abstraction-allusion to the revolution in painting and tsarist Russia. Joke, "Karate" is a normal calm album with a childhood step, a memory, stepping on a rake, morning winter sun and a lot of love, not without a little prank.
