New Yorks Lark Play Development Center & Moscows Lyubimovka Festival recently conspired to have several great American plays be translated and adapted for the Russian stage. I was tapped to translate and adapt Arthur Kopits Wings. After Arthur and the other playwrights participating in the workshop flew in, we took my first draft and worked on the adaptation together, alongside director Daniel Romanov and a wonderful cast with the great Varvara Pushkarskaya in the lead.

There are several myths about Russia, they come from different sources but have no actual proof. They are wide spread not only among foreigners but among Russians too. I think it is rather interesting to find out more about Russian culture and history and get rid of usual myths.

However, there is a number of places in Moscow foreign tourists are rarely shown. One of them is restricted USSR military object Secured Command Post Taganskiy (GO-42), located 65 meters underground.

All Russian news channels are now featuring the radiant and seductive beauty Dima Bilan, a new Russian peoples hero. Have you seen him creeping there onstage? You like it?

A couple of decades ago Soviet people were regarded as the most reading all over the world. Inexorable statistics confirmed this fact. Frankly speaking, that was true: in parks, underground stations or buses one could come across people reading newspapers, books and magazines.

Moscow has always been known for its theatres and theres a variety of old, well-known and new, modern theatres you can go to.

This is real Russia, where ancient and Soviet traditions form a harmonious union - strange as it may seem. Luckily, it was not disfeatured by the communists.

What can one expect from a comic book screening describing near future, fascist government, fight for the human rights? Altogether it sounds like a not so good idea, used many times before. But thats just a wrapper.
