Alice Through The Looking Glass on the Moscow Stage

If you’re in Russia this winter, warm up with a new production of “Alice Through The Looking Glass” at the Fomenko Studio Theatre at at 29 Naberezhnaya Tarasa Shevchenko, on December 29th and 31st. John Freedman’s review in the Moscow Times raves about the “visually beautiful production”. Freedman also complains about the slow pace:

[…] Carroll’s rich and inventive language, translated here by Nina Demurova, occasionally paralyzes the action. Alice’s meeting with Humpty Dumpty (rendered in Russian as Shaltai-Boltai and played by Vasily Firsov) seems particularly trapped.
