Four days of two per­for­mances «House» and «Libra» in the di­rec­tion of Evgeny Gr­ishkovets with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the best ac­tors from the Moscow Art Theater troupe they kept Uzbek peo­ple in a state of light tonus and ex­pect­ing pleas­ant sur­prise.

Open­ing the stage, the au­thor and direc­tor Evgeny Gr­ishkovets said: «Libra» - this is my new play, the stage fate of which I de­cided to do my­self. This is the first time with me. Why? Yes, only for the sim­ple rea­son that I do not dare to trust the heroes of this ten­der play with other peo­ple's hands. Although the char­ac­ters of «Libra» are not sissies. They are nor­mal, earthly men. But it is pre­cisely in this play that I am par­tic­u­larly dear, be­cause they are go­ing through an ex­cit­ing, im­por­tant and very spe­cial night.»

And the char­ac­ters are not re­ally sissies. Af­ter all, one of them was played by the «ab­so­lute man» Igor Zolo­tovit­sky. His game was spe­cial, although, per­haps, we per­ceived it so and felt it, know­ing in ad­vance that he was our fel­low coun­try­man. But in any case, his en­ergy, his de­sire to show the best game, his love for his na­tive Tashkent, ex­cited the au­di­ence dur­ing the whole show. And he him­self did not hide it: «To play in the city in which I was born and grew up is very ex­cit­ing, be­cause this is a theater that stun­ning tra­di­tions. Re­gard­less of the lan­guage on which they play, it's still a Rus­sian theater school, and this is a psy­cho­log­i­cal theater, the theater on which we grew up.»

Play­ing the main char­ac­ter in the play «House», Igor Yakovle­vich bril­liantly turned into the role of a suc­cess­ful doc­tor with prof­itable pri­vate prac­tice, who de­cided to pur­chase a plot of land. Out­wardly, a very re­al­is­tic everyday story, but very ac­cu­rately rais­ing the topic of hu­man val­ues, which, un­for­tu­nately, are in­com­pat­i­ble with ma­te­rial val­ues. All char­ac­ters are ab­so­lutely rec­og­niz­able, taken from life. Zolo­tovit­sky man­aged to ex­press him­self very sub­tly and quite un­ob­vi­ously at his con­fu­sion about the re­fusal of his friends to help. With his bril­liant play he pushed us to think deeply about such im­por­tant com­po­nents of hu­man re­la­tions as friend­ship, love, be­trayal.

For those mes­sages that the ac­tor sent from the stage to the viewer, he re­ceived an in­stant feed­back. And even when the hall was si­lent, Zolo­tovit­sky felt this ver­bose si­lence. There­fore, hav­ing ex­cel­lently played the main char­ac­ter of the «House», he bowed out and with grat­i­tude said: «The Uzbek peo­ple amazed me not only with the abil­ity to laugh when it is nec­es­sary, but also the abil­ity to re­main si­lent. Some­times si­lence sets us so adorn­ing that you want to shout about it.»
