according to the city it is one of the best theatres, that is always host the theatres from other countries/cities with interesting performance and godd actors play. more »
It is a nice, cozy venue to see plays in Russian. The actors are very engaging. The sound isn't quite so good, but it didn't deter too much from the performance. The ticket prices are reasonable, as well. I saw the Brothers Karamazov there and enjoyed it quite thoroughly. It did start a bit behind schedule, however.
