by Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt, Directed by Elvira Rîmbu

A professional meeting between two intelligent men, the writer Abel Znorko (Sebastian Lupu), Nobel Prize for Literature winner, and the journalist Erik Larsen (Petre Ghimbășan), becomes suddenly a spoken chess match.

The meeting is getting a labyrinth form, designed with refinement and a good feeling of the suspense.

The show is directed by Elvira Rîmbu, who directed also ”A very simple story”; on the stage, there are two remarkable actors, that formed during the time a strong duet, able to surprise the public through the subtle and witty shades of their characters.  The complex scenography is created by Oana Cernea. This team creates a surprising and vital production.

Adaptation by Matei Mircioane – after Tudor Mușatescu. Artistic Director: Dan Mirea

The twelfth grades, funny and entertained, have part of the agitation caused by the imminence of the baccalaureate exam. Beside that, there is another tension, created by the appearance of the new French teacher, „cool, young, brunette, tall...”, in whose person girls discover an Adonis, and boys a rival.

This novelty gives rise to tense situations, for which it is necessary to intervene even the class master, whose interes tis also directed to the young techer. The naivety from which the misunderstandings erupt, creates the comic situation, making an original, cheerful and lively show.

Both the events themselves and the way in which are staged, put the show in a „cloak” of universality, accessible to public, which, regardless of age, will easily succeed in identifying or empathizing with any of the characters.

dramatic script by Anca Măniuțiu – featuring texts by Luigi Pirandello, directed by Mihai Măniuțiu

“Pirandello café” starts from the dramatic script made by Anca Măniuțiu, structured on two plays that belong to the playwright Luigi Pirandello: The man with the flower in his mouth and The mountain giants, which contains in its intertext entwining disparate lines from Six characters in search for an author and Tonight we improvise.

Pirandellian characters, spectrally designed in an abandoned late-night coffee shop, located – not unintentionally – close to the railway station, they meet and unleash an absurd world, where the boundary between dream and reality becomes fluid. In this ghostly frame, it infiltrates a group of circus artists that stimulate the atmosphere and gives the performance a comic touch. Word, in a world governed by oneiric, plays a secondary role, and music, but must of all the choreographic language assumes its illustrative dimension.

“The performance tries to catch a hallucinatory world, fantastic, governed by oneiric, where the boundary between reality and dream (or nightmare) is extremely fragile. In conceiving the script, I started from Pirandello`s obsessions, expressed in all of his dramatic writings. These refer to versatile, difficult to quantify ratios, between theatre and life, to the impossibility of fixing life – as a constant, unbridled flow – into the conventional patterns and our social masks (or in the well-defined identity of some characters). From here, questioning our own psycho-emotional identity and of reality itself, which slips from our grasp. From here, the vague psychological consistency of the characters and their fundamental inadequacy to reality. “Pirandello café” is the materialization of an emblematic metaphor and an of ancient theatrical motif: life is a dream.” Anca Măniuțiu

By Peter Quilter, Artistic Director: Cristian Ioan

„Glorious!” is a comedy inspired by the life of Florence Foster Jenkins, known in history as the worst opera singer in the world, attributing to her the ironic title of „First Lady of the glissando”. Passionate with music until pathetic, despite the irony of some and the ridiculous desire, she succeeds and her concerts are sold out. The climax of his career is the recital on one of New York's most prestigious concert venues: Carnegie Hall. Her success wouldn't have been possible without the financial resources at her disposal and the support of some devoted friends. An extraordinary show, where the border between courage and naivety disappears. A character willing to give up anything to fulfil her dream. A humorous story, which, paradoxically, has made history and managed to inspire even today. 

Adaptation from Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Artistic Direction – Marius Costache

„The Little Prince” is one of the most famous and beloved literary works, being translated into more than 250 languages and dialects and adapted to many other art forms, including theater. But the charm that Saint Exupery's story exerts on readers goes beyond the linguistic and artistic boundaries, but also a much more significant: the age.

Director Marius Costache managed to recreate the delightful universe of the story on the stage of Queen Marie Theater, preserving the specific candor, but also the profoundly philosophical side of the work. The show, therefore, is not only for the middle-aged children but also for the teenagers who are just walking in another dimension, that of the mature people who live alone on their own planets and are always absorbed by things without importance.

Dramatic rewriting by Victor Ioan Frunză after the comedy ”The noble bourgeois” by Jean Baptiste Poquelin Moliere and after the ”Jourdain the Twisted” by Mihail Bulgakov, scene direction: Victor Ioan Frunză.

Mr. Jurdan, an emphatic and naive spirit, is an extremely rich man, but he lacks something: the elegance of a person in the high society. So, to be a part of the high-class,he tends to be rigged out to trends, he is extravagantly decorating his house, he is making friends from the upper class and he is hiring an army of teachers to learn the manners of a man of rank. From this whole equation, the result can't be anything other than just a hilarious one. Overwhelming ridiculously, Mr. Jurdan comes from the nobleman's claim, to the court clown. And when ignorance meets the pretense of erudition, everything turns into a comedy that you'll laugh for hours at a time. A comedy of our times, which reflects the slippage of the opulence of rich people. The action takes place in Romania, in Jurdan's house.

by Maria Lado, directed by Elvira Rîmbu

This show is a very simple story. A story about love: love between a boy and a girl, love for the others, love for animals... A story about how hard is to choose and about self-sacrifice. A story with humans, animals, and even angels. With laughter, with tears... a mix of comedy, drama and poetry. This three things are joint together, as in the real life...

 by Dale Wasserman, based on a novel by Ken Kesey

The story, narrated by the gigantic but docile half-Native American inmate "Chief" Bromden, focuses on the antics of the rebellious Randle Patrick McMurphy, who faked insanity to serve out his prison sentence, for statutory rape, in the hospital. The head administrative nurse, Mildred Ratched, rules the ward with a mailed fist and with little medical oversight. She is assisted by her three black day-shift orderlies and her assistant doctors. McMurphy constantly antagonizes Nurse Ratched and upsets the routines, leading to constant power struggles between the inmate and the nurse. He runs a card table, captains the ward's basketball team, comments on Nurse Ratched's figure, and incites the other patients on the ward to conduct a vote on watching the World Series on television.

by Shalom Aleichem, directed by Korcsmaros Gyorgy

“A fiddler on the roof. Sounds crazy, no? But here, in our little village of Anatevka, you might say every one of us is a fiddler on the roof trying to scratch out a pleasant, simple tune without breaking his neck. It isn’t easy. You may ask ‘Why do we stay up there if it’s so dangerous?’ Well, we stay because Anatevka is our home. And how do we keep our balance? That I can tell you in one word: tradition!”

Thus begins “The Fiddler on the Roof”, the adaptation of Sholom Aleichem story “Tevye’s Daughters” – one of the most successful musicals throughout history. Since its debut in 1964 on Broadway, the play has known countless adaptations, being among the critic’s favorites.

This performance is one of the most successful at our theatre: it has participated in numerous festivals, receiving numerous awards (for best actor: Richard Balint; for best choreography: Lorant Andras) and nominations (we mention the two honorable nominations received for the UNITER GALA – the most prestigious distinctions in the theatre in Romania – for best actress /Ioana Dragos Gajdo/ and best set /Vioara Bara/).

by Vajda Katalin, artistic director: Andrei Mihalache

“The Lovers of Ancona” is a musical comedy, adapted by Vajda Katalin, in which all appearances are false and nothing is what it seems. The play is a musical comedy, the songs are those chosen from the ‘60’s and ‘70’s, and all heroes know how to sing, proving once again, if necessary, that the Italians are romantic and passionate. The action of the play takes place in the little town called Ancona, in an old piazza, where the togetherness of the homes and the Latin blood make keeping secrets impossible. The most important man in town is Tomao Nicomaco, a widowed Don Juan, who is no longer in his young years, but is set to conquer a young Romanian maiden, Victorița, who is visiting Ancona in order to find Giovanni, the father of her unborn child.

A script by Dan Mirea, Director: Dan Mirea

 One of the most famous and loved children's stories, ”The Wizard of Oz” has seduced generations of children over the years. Written at the beginning of the century, more precisely in 1900, the ”Wizard of Oz” has become an immortal story over time, being considered, in fact, the first modern American fairy tale. Dorothy's adventures – a Kansas girl, thrown by a tornado on strange lands – are famous all over the world, aware of numerous dramatizations and screenings. Although, more than 100 years have passed since the launch of the book, children around the world are still fascinated by the wonderful world of Oz.

A superb romantic comedy, “Barefoot in the Park” shows the efforts 2 young people make in order to build their life together and especially, to mix harmoniously the personalities that lead to feelings which are opposite, from time to time. Impulsive and impetuous, Corrine Bratter takes very seriously her unique role to be “Paul’s wife”, and invests all her energy into making him happy, in spite of the difficulties they face at the beginning of their life as a family. Paul, a lawyer who has just won his first 6 cents from his first trial, is a more steady and temperate. The conflict of the play arises from the clench of their two distinct personalities, which will shortly lead them to thoughts of divorce and separation. To walk or not to walk barefoot in the park represents the metaphor for the lover’s conflict.
