All in all, it’s not so easy to guess what will happen with Lyubimov and his actors in a few years. Everything only seems clear to those who don’t accept their work: “it's not dramatic, they’re not actors," etc. It was the same after the first show as after the tenth: opponents remained certain that such a theatre wouldn't last for long. Their arguments didn’t change with time – and the Theatre on Taganka has changed much more noticeably in the intervening years than its opponents have. It’s an old truth: if a theatre is alive, it’s in motion.
