More: 25 years ago, a group of artists from different countries and a director, playwright Slava Stepnov, created STEPS. Now this theater occupies a worthy place in the cultural space of New York, it is loved by the audience, it is known in many countries.
In its anniversary year in 2022, the theater presents the premiere of Slava Stepnov's play Zhopkin Choir, a sad comedy about the life of immigrant actors.
The play takes place in Brooklyn, in a Russian-language radio studio. The day before, the Maestro dies - the director of the theater in which the heroes of the play serve.
The artists, having gathered to record an advertisement, learn about the last will of the director: in the moments of farewell, instead of traditional applause, he asked to sing his favorite song. Chorus! Not everyone likes such an unexpected desire of the Maestro - the artists, reflecting and conflicting, cannot decide what to do. In dialogues and disputes, characters appear, destinies and families collapse, the secret becomes clear.
The performance is in Russian.
