Un anno è passato dalla comparsa della pandemia in suolo italiano con le sue inimmaginabili conseguenze. Un anno da quando il settore teatrale in tutte le sue sfaccettature soffre ,oltre che del mancato lavoro, del silenzio delle istituzioni, categorizzato come 'attività non essenziale' al Paese in tempi pandemici. A chiedere l'ascolto e la restituzione di un'ontologica dignità è U.N.I.T.A. (Unione Nazionale Interpreti Teatro e Audiovisivo) con l'iniziativa FACCIAMO LUCE SUL TEATRO!

BWW Review: NAPOLI MILIONARIA! At the Stratford Festival is a Beautiful and Heartbrea Photo BWW Review: NAPOLI MILIONARIA! At the Stratford Festival is a Beautiful and Heartbreaking Exploration of Humanity
by Lauren Gienow - Aug 24, 2018

It is rare these days that I take my seat in a theatre to watch a play that I know almost nothing about. I was almost embarrassed to admit that fact about Eduardo De Filippo's NAPOLI MILIONARIA! Which is currently being performed in repertory at the Stratford Festival's Avon Theatre. Granted, the original was in Italian and this production, directed by the Festival's Artistic Director, Antoni Cimolino, is the world premiere of the new translation by John Murrell (from a literal translation by Donato Santeramo). It was still not until I was reading the program liner notes that I knew more about this production than the brief synopsis offered on the Stratford Festival website. To my delight, I think this only enriched my experience as an audience member. The universality in a story that was written about a very specific time and place is nothing short of beautiful, and the performances have left me thinking about the play long after the final curtain.

Alberto Bassetti's DEALERS OF SOULS to Play TNC in November
by BWW News Desk - Oct 28, 2015

In Italy, theaters are under real estate pressure; their precious locations and spacious buildings are eagerly sought by developers who try to convert valued cultural assets into commercial buildings.  This clash of artistic idealism and commercial opportunism has been dramatized by Italian playwright Alberto Bassetti in 'Dealers of Souls,' a new play whose American premiere will be presented November 12 to 29 by Theater for the New City in collaboration with Kairos Italy Theatre.  It's a supernatural drama in which two men are negotiating the sale of an old theater. The buyer, a clearly corrupt theater entrepreneur, promises to restore it but actually, he intends to turn it into a supermarket. Can his intrigues be stymied by a strange actress who squats in the building, who seems to be part hobo and part phantom of the theater?  Can she save the day?
