Toronto, ON... Actors Repertory Company (ARC) announced earlier today that their March 20th performance of The City would be in honour of Award winning Romanian Director Cristian Popescu.
To commemorate his Toronto directing debut ARC will be offering the Toronto Romanian community $15 tickets to the 8 PM show on March 20th, which includes a talk back session with the Director following the performance. To purchase the discount tickets, call 416-368-3110 with the code word NOROC.
Internationally acclaimed and award winning Director Cristian Popescu has worked extensively in Romania, Canada, The U.S. and across Europe. In Romania he staged works that had never before been seen on Romanian stages, such as Crimp’s Play With Repeats, Barker’s Scenes From An Execution, Kushner’s Angels In America and Walker’s Criminal Genius. In Canada, Popescu’s directing credits include Biljana Srblijanovic’s Family Stories, Marius Von Mayenburg’s Fireface, and Hanoch Levin’s Krum. He now divides his time between Canadian and Romanian stages.
The City, presented by the two time Dora Award winning company ARC, marks the Canadian premičre of Martin Crimp’s deliciously wicked yet profound new work. It also marks Director Cristian Popescu’s first time directing for the company. Starring Deb Drakeford, Peter James Haworth and Janet Porter, The City is a vision of contemporary society as a place of social decay, moral compromise and barely suppressed violence.
