IN TRANSLATION: introducing English captions for selected productions
Moscow Art Theatre is†introducing IN TRANSLATION,†a new program for English-speaking theatregoers. In†November we†will start presenting selected productions with English titles, gradually expanding the repertoire available for our patrons who don't speak Russian.

Two Years without Marina Golub
It is†two years today since we†lost Marina Golub. Pain from a†terrible, tragic loss of†a†great actress, adored by†many, does not subside, and probably never will. She is†being constantly remembered at†the Moscow Art Ė with her charm, warmth, and her exquisite sense of†humor. She was the soul of†our companyÖ Paying tribute to†her, today we†are publishing for the first time a†unique video footage of†the finale of†Vassa Zheleznova by†Maxim Gorky, a†2010†production by†Leo Erenburg, where Marina is†depicting a†bit-by-bit gradual death of†Vassa with striking actuality. Vassa was one of†our best productions in†recent years, and it†is†gone, along with Marina.
