The new general director of the Gorky Moscow Art Theater Vladimir Kekhman announced the temporary closure of the theater for renovations. About it informs Izvestia newspaper on Wednesday, 24 November.
It is noted that the institution will be closed for four months from July 1 to November 1, 2022. Kekhman explained that this must be done, since the stage complex is “in a pre-emergency state.” “We have investigated everything, it is in a safe condition, but there has been no renovation for 50 years,” the theater director said during a troupe meeting.
On November 21, Zakhar Prilepin, deputy artistic director of the Gorky Moscow Art Academic Theater, said that Kekhman had been given a specific task as general director.
Businessman Vladimir Kekhman was appointed general director of the theater in October, and a month later the former director and artistic director Eduard Boyakov left the theater and wrote a statement of his own free will.
