First, In the Game Theatre is a thoroughly conceptual venue with a chamber hall. The stage is very close to where the orchestra sits, bringing actors and audiences into direct contact and conveying the finest details of the acting, feelings and emotions. Second, the productions are highly selective. The theatre’s guests are treated exclusively to shows by famous directors.
See for yourself: the theatre has already hosted Russia’s Merited Artists Rostislav Khait, Leonid Barats, Kamil Larin, Alexander Demidov («Quartet I»), Sergey Chonishvili (SAMi association of actors and musicians), Vladimir Sterzhakov (Contemporary Combination Company), Elena Ksenofontova, Sergey Kolesnikov and others. In the Game has presented over 15 shows.
Third, the organizers seat audiences in a very interesting way: you can buy seats at a table with sparkling wine and handmade confectionary. The theatre’s lobby features a street-art-style tableau vivant installation. This is what 18+ means in the theatre located on the second floor of Casino Sochi. Sounds like an ideal cultural outing during your planned vacation or a spur-of-the-moment weekend in the mountains.
