FELIX AND DORIS - NEW COMEDY AT MADLENIANUM
The Opera & Theatre Madlenianum has begun, after two drama premieres this season (What If We Had Our Time Again? and Miss Julie), its preparations for a new drama project – comedy Felix and Doris scheduled to be performed on the Small Stage on 9 December 2021.
The romantic comedy Felix and Doris, a genuine theatrical pearl of the American writer Bill Manhoff, is directed by a great, multi awarded comedic director, Olja Djordjevic, who has highly successfully staged Yuri Polyakov’s comedy The Briefcase at the Madlenianum. As of 28 November, you will have the opportunity to see the revived performance of this play with the new actors, Sofija Jurican as Sonja and Petar Mihailovic as Fyodor.
Felix and Doris is a love story of two people on the margins, finding not only love for each other through the play, but very themselves as well, their own identities. It is lovely to have this wonderful and deep human story developed through hilariously comic situations and audience strengthened and guided to optimism these days when laughter is a medicine.
Vanja Milacic, an exceptionally talented and for a long time one of the Madlenianum’s audience favourite actress, is in the role of an incredible, atypical model and actress Doris. Her partner Felix, an unestablished writer in a play, is the fantastic Vladimir Grbic, the guest from Subotica and a principal of their theatre.
The team of authors also includes a composer Irena Popovic Dragovic, a set designer Damjan Paranosic, a costume designer Milica Grbic Komazec, a stage movement assistant Mirko Knezevic and a stage speech assistant Sasa Latinovic.
The play, set in the 1960s and adapted into the cult film The Owl and the Pussycat with Barbra Streisand and George Segal starring, is sure to bring joy to the Madlenianum stage and become one of the favourite theatre venues during these hard times we are living in.
