The Alexandrinsky Theater is presenting premiere of Distinguished Artist of Russia Igor Volkovs one-man-show An Anxious Box Keepers Sketch-Book. This is the second job of the Monologues in the Tsars Lobby cycle; Peoples Artist of Russia Nickolay Marton started this cycle with his performance of the same name composed of pieces from plays of classic repertoire. Igor Volkov is an outstanding master of one-man-shows; his individual jobs were honored with theater awards, recognized by critics, and admired by public. In the actors repertoire, this genre had got its best realizations in the performances A Merry Cemetery after A. Chekhovs stories; A Grumblers Confession after Fyodor Dostoyevskys diaries, and The Last Gogols Dream. They all are united by the broad-scale amplitude of emotional story-telling, putting together the tender lyrics and coarse grotesque; elegant humor and tragic compassion to the character.

An Anxious Box Keepers Sketch-Book was composed of Mikhail Zoshchenkos stories Madonna; Medical Case History, and other. Igor Volkov often is the author of his one-man-shows; in the new job, he is the author of the literature and stage composition of the performance, and he also plays the role of Zoshchenkos stories character, a small man Vasily Bylinkin. Piano player Inna Andreyeva is also taking part in the performance.
The 50-minute performance goes with no intermissions.

The first night of the performance is scheduled for December 7, 2013.
