Description

This winter, acclaimed Russian director Aleksey Burago and The Russian Arts Theater and Studio is pleased to present an encore run of Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita, Or, The Devil Comes to Moscow, a stage adaptation by Jean-Claude Van Itallie based on the cult masterpiece The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov.

Written in secrecy during the darkest period of Stalin's reign, this cult masterpiece is part love story, part phantasmagoria, and part biting satire. On a hot spring day, the Devil pays a visit to Moscow. His retinue includes a naked witch, a fanged assassin, a vodka swigging black cat, and a slew of other dazzling characters who soon wreak havoc among the cultural elite. But the Devil's mission quickly becomes entangled with the fate of the Master - a tortured writer who has turned his back on his former life and taken refuge inside a lunatic asylum - and his lover, Margarita, who decides to sell her soul to save him.

Performed in English.

Directed by Aleksey Burago

Adapted for the stage by Jean-Claude Van Itallie from a translation by Sergei Kobiakoff
