Dramaturg. Graduated from the theatre criticism faculty of LGITMIK.
“I first recognized Natasha Krymova sight-unseen. I graduated from the theatre criticism faculty in Leningrad, I wasn’t one of her classmates, I wasn’t acquainted with her from GITIS, and I left to work in the Urals. But it was there in the Urals, I remember how I read one of Krymova’s first articles, which was impressed on my soul for my entire life. It was an article about Evstigneev, who played Glukhar in the Sovremennik production of “Two Colors.” It seemed to me an altogether different level of truth, next to what was then being called theatre criticism. And almost at the same time, I was introduced in Moscow to Efros’ shows at the Central Children’s Theatre. They were both total revelations for me. From that time, I and many others didn’t simply read, but anticipated Krymova’s appearances in “Theatre,” just as we yearned to see Efros’ shows. For me, it was such an important part of my personal, internal life."
