Theater 2 (The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 2), T2
1924. France. Directed by Alexandre Volkoff. With Ivan Mosjoukine, Nicolas Koline, Nathalie Lissenko, Otto Detlefsen. Kean was considered at the time to be the apogee of both Volkoff’s and Mosjoukine’s careers. Mosjoukine dazzles and charms as Edmund Kean, the celebrated Shakespearian actor of the early 19th century, and Koline shines as his comic sidekick. Critics lauded set designer Ivan Lochakoff’s painstaking reconstruction of the legendary Drury Lane Theater. 142 min.
