New Yorks Lark Play Development Center & Moscows Lyubimovka Festival recently conspired to have several great American plays be translated and adapted for the Russian stage.

However, there is a number of places in Moscow foreign tourists are rarely shown. One of them is restricted USSR military object Secured Command Post Taganskiy (GO-42), located 65 meters underground.

The title Free Floating says almost nothing of the film; neither is the initial title Road Works more speaking. The film director Boris Khlebnikov dislikes both the titles: The genre of parable is extremely vexing. I always want to film simple stories. About Vasya, or about Petya

Moscow has always been known for its theatres and theres a variety of old, well-known and new, modern theatres you can go to.
