Nuntă dublă, comedie pe măsură!

O avalanșă de aplauze s-a auzit după spectacolul Pețitoarele, în regia lui Ion Sapdaru – adaptat după o idee a dramaturgului georgian Avksentii Tzagareli – , o producție teatrală care a avut toate ingredientele unei sănătoase porții de comedie savuroasă, de la construcția personajelor inspirate din commedia dell’arte (îndrăgostiții, prințul, negustorul parvenit, servitorul) și până la situațiile rizibile neobișnuite prin care trec acestea. 2,082 more words

"Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above / Don't fence me in"*...

The human urge to own land sometimes borders on the absurd… Do we have too many cities with too few people in them? (Answer: Yes!) But there’s an implicit question embedded in that notion of anti-NIMBY place-making, once posed by Leo Tolstoy: “How much land does a man need?”
