‘Los fakers’ by Pablo Remón arrives in Romea on Saturday with sold-out tickets
The ‘Classics in January’ cycle continues for another week, bringing some of the best classical works and the great playwrights closer to Murcia’s viewers. This Friday at 8 p.m. it’s William Shakespeare’s turn. His play ‘Twelfth Night’ is coming to 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, with one of her most popular comedies, in which love once again plays the leading role. And Pimenta himself and Álvaro Tato are in charge of the version of this acclaimed text in which the author delights the public with the dissemination of secrets, conscious or unconscious falsehoods and riddles to be deciphered, making it clear that there are no certainties.
Tickets for ‘Twelfth Night’ are on sale for 15, 20 and 22 euros at the TCM box office (open Tuesday to Friday from 11am to 1.30pm and from 5.30pm to 8.30pm) and also via its website, www. teatrocircomurcia.es. Thanks to the collaboration with Teatro Accesible, ‘Twelfth Night’ will be a fully accessible show, as it will be available in addition to the individual magnetic loop service and amplified sound with headphones, audio description and subtitles.
But this week, theater at the TCM kicks off a few days earlier, on Tuesday, January 24 at 7 p.m. The students of the Escuela Superior de Arte Dramático de Murcia (ESAD) will once again take the stage with a version of the rock musical ‘Casi normals (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 Romea Theater returns this week to hang the “sold out” sign with ‘Los phonies’, a comedy written and directed by Pablo Remón, National Prize for Dramatic Literature 2021, and starring Javier Cámara, Francesco Carril, Nuria Mencia and Marina Salas. The National Dramatic Center and Buxman Productions sign this production arriving in Murcia on Saturday 28 January at 8pm.
It’s an acclaimed comedy in which four actors travel through dozens of characters, spaces and times; a satire on the world of theater and audiovisuals, but also a reflection on success, failure and the roles we play, in fiction and beyond.
This week, proposals will also be made in the three city theaters to enjoy theater and music with the family. On Saturday, January 28 at noon, a new story in English arrives in the Hall of Mirrors of the Romea Theater. This is ‘The Brave Little Tailor’, played by Eva Mataix and 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 via www.teatroromea.es.
In the case of the TCM, on Sunday January 29th at noon most rockers will enjoy a new Rock and Familia show: ‘I Love Rock and Roll 2’. After the success of the first episode of this proposal, this concert, full of music and humor, now takes 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 cost 10, 12 and 15 euros.
In the case of the Bernal Theater in El Palmar, you can also enjoy the musical show ‘El maravilloso viaje de Lea’ on Sunday, January 29 at noon. A journey that explores the motivations of each girl and boy, through their dreams, desires, worries, reasonings, fears and emotions. A work that takes us into the inner and imaginary universe of a five-year-old girl, on a unique and unrepeatable summer trip in a caravan, with her two mothers, to Playa de las Langostas.
‘Lea’s Miraculous Journey’ (La Banda) is recommended from 4 years old and tickets, which have a single price of 4 euros, can be purchased via the website www.teatrobernal.com and at the box office, on the same day of the performance, from two hours before the start.
Finally, these stage performances are accompanied by a new show from the cycle ‘A pie de calle’: ‘Poi’, by Cía. D’Es Tro. It’s this Saturday, January 28 at noon when it will be possible to see in the Parque de la Libertad de Guadalupe (next to the Cultural Center) this family show with a man trapped since childhood by the gyroscopic effect of his spinning top . A journey full of twists and turns that takes young and old into the world of play, one of the most important states of life.
Fusing the art of the circus with the popular game of the spinning top and the roots of Mediterranean culture is the goal of this contemporary show that combines juggling and object manipulation. In addition, it is notable for the artisanal research into the construction of the decor and spinning tops by Guillem Vizcaíno himself, which has enabled him to make, for example, one of the largest spinning tops in the world.
