The Cherry Orchard at the Helsinki City theatre is distinctive and loud in various ways. The madame is so perky, coming to the surroundings of her traumas, yet she doesn't want to deal with the things that haunt her. Only when the future is glaring at the horizon she runs inside, becoming like a stone at the feet of things not processed.

Several years ago, I attended a production of The Cherry Orchard. Before the show began, a castmate of mine from another production leaned over from the row behind me and whispered to me, almost conspiratorially, that 'Chekhov is.....challenging', with the apparent implication that she hoped the actors were up for the task (in my estimation, they were).

Ilia Volok's critically acclaimed one-man show, DIARY OF A MADMAN, was just nominated for a New York Innovative Theater Award in the best solo performance category. When I saw the show last fall, I noticed it drew a particularly eclectic audience--people of all ages, from all walks of life. That popular demand that led to an extended run came as no surprise to me because Gogol's classic, poignantly brought to life, deals with loneliness and the human propensity for dreams and delusions. Volok's bittersweet portrayal of Poprishchin made the character an Everyman instead of a farce. I knew show had universal appeal, but I wouldn't have guessed its next stop would be Dubai.
