Friends, Come Celebrate With Us!
2017 has been a blessed and fruitful year for The Russian Arts Theater and Studio. The season opened with our first annual New York Chekhov Festival at The Center at West Park, featuring Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters, a Russian-speaking production of Swan Song and Anton Chekhov and The Golden Age of The Moscow Art Theater, a lecture free and open to the public held at New York University. As spring turned to summer, TRATS continued its season with a sold-out run of Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita, Or, The Devil Comes to Moscow, a production featuring an 18-ensemble cast that played to rave reviews in the overfilled West End Theater. In our profession, there is nothing more gratifying than being able to create realities within the walls of the theater. However, no creation is complete without the final and most important aspect of theater-making: the audience. From the bottom of our hearts, we wish to thank you for being part of 2017.
As the year comes to an end, we invite you to join the artists at The Russian Arts Theater and Studio in our winter benefit performance: The Rise and Fall of Macondo, Celebrating Gabriel García Márquez. The evening will begin with a cocktail reception with wine and hors d'oeuvres paired with live music followed by a theatrical performance featuring the actors of The Russian Arts Theater and Studio ensemble. Directed by Artistic Director Aleksey Burago, the actors will perform a series of improvisations based on Márquez's magnum opus One Hundred Years of Solitude. All proceeds from ticket sales will go toward funding another season of productions at The Russian Arts Theater and Studio. This December, please join us at The Alchemical Theater Lab and take delight in the magical and sensual world of Gabriel García Márquez!
