If love’s a miracle, then to whom does it happen? If love’s a right, then why isn’t it written into law? If love is happiness, then how long does it last? And if it’s pain, then where to find an antidote? Who knows… The world is full of pain as is. Instead - let’s talk about love!
"А Star Without A Name" is a melodramatic tragicomedy adapted by Ilya Eckstein from a translation of Mihail Sebastian's "Steaua Fără Nume." Written in 1942 in Romania, it quickly became a hit on theater stages across Europe. Produced by PM Theater, the play will premiere in New York City at the Theatre at St. Clement's, November 8 - December 3, 2023.
Commissioned by the Eckstein Family Fund and fiscally sponsored by COJECO, PM Theater's "A Star Without A Name" is produced by Sergey Nagorny and directed by Gera Sandler.
The setting of the play is a provincial town in Romanian countryside, situated along the popular train route from Bucharest to Sinai. By sheer chance, an express train that usually flies by without so much as slowing down, makes a quick stop at the town's only train station, leaving behind a sole passenger: a mysterious young redhead. Her beauty strikes right through the heart of a simple school teacher, who's fascinated by stars and astronomy. Will their improbable love survive past its cosmic conception or will it combust like so many nameless stars in the sky?
Directed by Gera Sandler and performed in memoriam of Ilya Eckstein, who adapted the English translation, "A Star Without A Name" features scenic design by Jenya Shekhter, original score composed and performed by Masha Vasilevskaya, and costume design by Luna Gomberg. PM Theater's Anna Bredikhina serves as the show’s administrative producer.
