- On June 27-July1 Bucharest hosted "Apostrophe" International Theater Festival. "Hitler in Love", one-man show produced in "Tony Bulandra" Theatre and directed by Armenian director Suren Shahverdyan, was featured at the festival and awarded with second prize.
"Hitler in Love" is a theatre one man show written and played by Dumitru Acris and directed by Armenian director Suren Shahverdyan. The approach is not a political one. You will find the other side of Hitler totally unknown by the masses. The plot is presenting Hitler's last days of life, closed in his bunker. There are revealed aspects of his intimate life: the relationship with his mother, with his lovers and with his army generals. The text presents his hate for Jewish people, his unknown weaknesses, the role of music in his life. The conclusion of this approach could be that any child missing his parents loves risks to become a dictator. "Hitler in Love" was produced in Tony Bulandra Theatre in Romania (Tirgoviste) in November 2008. Starting with January 2009, "Hitler in Love" will be played in Moscow and Berlin.
Inaugurated on the 30th of January 2002, "Tony Bulandra" Theatre from Târgoviste is the one of the youngest repertory theatres in Romania. In less than 5 years, the theatre managed to impose its youthful yet powerful image through an ambitious program, through being passionate and dynamism. The company has presently approximately 30 actors, the average age being 30. "Tony Bulandra" Theatre's productions were shown in tours, festivals or experience changes both within the country and abroad. As a repertory institution, "Tony Bulandra" Theatre is looking for the most important texts in the universal dramaturgy.
