Welcome to the "Hotel California" - Premiere in Moscow Theatre
December 29, 2016 18:50

The Meyerhold Center presents the play "Hotel California", authored and directed by Sasha Denisova and inspired by the era of hippies and yippies with their legendary 50,000 march to Pentagon.
Director and playwright Alexandra Denisova creates a virtuoso portrait of that epoch of great idealists, dreamers and pacifists. Jointly with Shifra Kazhdan and Ksenia Peretrukhina, she skillfully revives the atmosphere of those years, bringing the audience into the hotel "California" that is imbued with the spirit of rock 'n' roll, free love and the infinite importance of living and creating "here and now".
 Very interesting is the author's idea to divide the play into two storylines: the viewers now find themselves in 2016 and listen to the life story a 25-year-young dancer (Constantine Chelkaev), and then is taken back to the 1960s to join Patti Smith (Anastasia Pronina), who barely makes ends meet and has been just dumped by Robert Mapplethorpe (Ilya Lovkiy), and Janis Joplin (Ksenia Orlova), who preaches free love but in spite of her "principles" is not ready to share Jim Morrison (Danila Kalabin) with anybody.
In the story, a young CIA agent named Jones (Roman Chaliapin) joins a yippie commune of the Hotel "California". Right at that time, yippie leaders Jerry Rubin (Victor Strel'chenko) and Abby Hoffman (Ilya Zamchalov), who also head the Vietnam Days Committee are preparing a plan for the Pentagon campaign. Jones must become one of them and find out how they are going to commit sabotage. But the more he mixes with them, the more he realizes that these guys are not dangerous.
The stage director urges people not to draw parallels between that epoch and the present day. The play "Hotel California" dwells on the eternal theme of intransigence and romantic, albeit a little naive idealism.
The brand new stage production is recommended to all those who would like to recall what boyish maximalism is and spend an evening with the music and spirit of The Doors, Jefferson Airplane and Led Zeppelin. Welcome to the hotel "California"!
