About

A famous poet and a well-known figure of the Russian Silver Age, Mihail Kuzmin (1872-1936) wrote a play, based on Charles Perrault’s fairy tale “Puss in Boots”. He kept all the story lines of the original text but added irony and lightness into the play, which are characteristic of Commedia dell’Arte.

This is the first play made for children audience in Roman Viktyuk Theatre. Director doesn’t attempt to adapt or simplify the story for kids, he’s absolutely sure that kids can understand much more, than it may seem for many adults. Worth saying that the kids fully justify director’s trust: they understand all the jokes well, laugh out loud at Ogre’s grimaces, altogether they help the Puss and don’t doubt for a single moment that the Good triumphs over Evil.
