‘Los fakers’ by Pablo Remón arrive on Saturday at Romea with sold-out tickets
The ‘Classics in January’ cycle continues for another week bringing some of the best classic works and the great playwrights closer to Murcian viewers. This Friday at 8:00 p.m., it will be William Shakespeare’s turn. His work ‘Twelfth Night’ will arrive at the Teatro Circo Murcia thanks to a co-production between Ur Teatro and the Teatro Español directed by Helena Pimenta.
The former director of the Compañía Nacional de Teatro Clásico (2011-2019) returns to Shakespeare with this new show, staging one of her most popular comedies, in which love is once again the protagonist. And Pimenta herself and Álvaro Tato are in charge of the version of this applauded text in which the author delights the public with the circulation of secrets, conscious or unconscious falsehoods and enigmas to be deciphered, making it clear that there are no certainties.
Tickets for ‘Twelfth Night’ can be purchased, for 15, 20 and 22 euros, at the TCM box office (open from Tuesday to Friday, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. ) and also through its website, www.teatrocircomurcia.es. Thanks to the collaboration with Teatro Accesible, ‘Twelfth Night’ will be a fully accessible show, since, in addition to the individual magnetic loop service and amplified sound with headphones being available, it will have audio description and subtitles.
But this week, the theater at the TCM will begin a few days earlier, on Tuesday, January 24 at 7:00 p.m. The students of the Escuela Superior de Arte Dramático de Murcia (ESAD) will take the stage again with a version of the rock musical ‘Casi normales (Next to Normal)’, the result of the 4th E Musical Workshop coordinated by Eva Torres. Admission is by invitation, which can be picked up at the box office or downloaded directly from the theater’s website.
‘The fakers’ at the Romea
The Romea Theater will return for its part this week to hang the “sold out” sign with ‘Los phonies’, a comedy written and directed by Pablo Remón, National Award for Dramatic Literature 2021, and starring Javier Cámara, Francesco Carril, Nuria Mencía and Marina Salas. The National Dramatic Center and Buxman Productions sign this production that will arrive in Murcia on Saturday, January 28 at 8:00 p.m.
It is an applauded comedy in which four actors travel through dozens of characters, spaces and times; a satire on the world of theater and audiovisuals, as well as a reflection on success, failure and the roles we play, in fiction and outside of it.
The three municipal theaters will also host proposals this week to enjoy theater and music with the family. On Saturday, January 28 at 12:00 noon, a new story dramatized in English will arrive at the Romea Theater’s Hall of Mirrors. This is ‘The Brave Little Tailor’, which will be played by Eva Mataix and which is recommended for boys and girls between 3 and 10 years old. The single price of tickets is 7 euros and can be purchased at the box office and through www.teatroromea.es.
In the case of the TCM, on Sunday, January 29 at 12:00 noon, the most rockers will enjoy a new Rock en Familia show: ‘I Love Rock and Roll 2’. After the success of the first installment of this proposal, this concert, full of music and humor, is now coming to the stage, in which the little ones will enjoy discovering the history and songs of Elvis Presley, Rolling Stones, Queen, AC/DC , Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Iron Maiden, Metallica or The Doors. Tickets are priced at 10, 12 and 15 euros.
In the case of the Bernal Theater in El Palmar, also on Sunday, January 29 at 12 noon, you can enjoy the musical show ‘El maravilloso viaje de Lea’. A journey that explores the motivations of any girl and boy, going through their dreams, desires, concerns, reasoning, fears and emotions. A work that takes us to the interior and imaginary universe of a five-year-old girl, on a unique and unrepeatable summer trip in a caravan, with hers and two of her mothers, to Playa de las Langostas.
‘Lea’s wonderful journey’ (La Banda) is recommended for ages 4 and up and tickets, which have a single price of 4 euros, can be purchased through the website www.teatrobernal.com and at the box office, the same day of the performance, from two hours before its start.
Spinning tops in Beniaján
Lastly, these stage performances are joined by a new show from the ‘A pie de calle’ cycle: ‘Poi’, by Cía. D’Es Tro. It will be this Saturday, January 28 at 12:00 p.m., when it will be possible to see, in the Parque de la Libertad de Guadalupe (next to the Cultural Center) this family show starring a man trapped since childhood by the gyroscopic effect of his spinning top. A journey of twists and turns that transports young and old to the world of the game, one of the most important states of life.
Fusing the arts of the circus with the popular game of the spinning top and the roots of Mediterranean culture is the objective of this contemporary show that combines juggling and object manipulation. In addition, it stands out for the artisan research regarding the construction of the scenery and spinning tops by Guillem Vizcaíno himself, which has allowed him to create, for example, one of the largest spinning tops in the world.
