Is Sergey planning to visit my city (country) with his theatre company?
It is not Sergey’s job to plan his engagements; it’s the job of the theatre administrator. Sergey is an actor, and actors, like soldiers, go where the general (i.e. his beloved theatre) commands them to go, regardless of what Sergey personally feels about many cities and towns in Russia and abroad. His updated touring diary can be seen HERE, so please check it regularly for updates.
I would like to chat with Sergey. How may I do that?
Due to his busy life Sergey does not visit this site’s forum every day. You could meet Sergey on-line and ask him questions on certain days (once every few months); the date and time will be advertised on the home page. If you have subscribed to our newsletter you will receive a notification about the next forum with Sergey via the same e-mail address you used for your registration.
Can I write to Sergey?
His e-mail address can be found at the bottom of each page of the site. Alternatively, you can write a “proper” letter and send it to the “Tabakerka” Theatre address: 105062, Москва, ул. Чаплыгина, 1-а, Театр п/р О.Табакова. And it will reach Sergey.
Is Sergey registered on these sites: Odnoklassniki, Vkontakte, Moi Mir, etc.?
No, he is registered ONLY here on his official site. Anybody who poses as Sergey Bezrukov on the above-mentioned sites is an impostor! Sergey also has an official channel on Youtube.ru
Does Sergey have any pets?
Yes. Sergey has a Cornish-Rex cat called Rameses (or Ryama). His fox terrier, Jim, lives with Sergey’s parents. This is Jim the Second. Before that there was Jim the First, also a fox terrier, who grew up with Sergey. Jim was named after Kachalov’s pet dog, who was mentioned in Esenin’s poem: «Give me, Jim, your paw for good luck…»
Does Sergey write poetry?
No. When he was 24, he wrote one poem. Since then Sergey has not written anything else. Here it is
My fate is to burn,
To ignite in a flash
Of magnesium fire
And then, burnt out, expire.
The bright flame
Will blind darkness
And people anew will believe:
Good is stronger than evil.
(Translated by Antonina Vorobyova)
Are there any video recordings of Sergey’s theatre performances?
At the moment the only available recording is a DVD of “Just Looney” (a.k.a. “Psikh”). You may purchase it for 500 rubles at the Tabakerka box offices in Moscow or in other cities when the theatre is on tour. We expect that in the near future the TV version of “Confessions of the Adventurer Felix Krool” will also be available on DVD. Also, the “Kultura” TV channel possesses some tapes in its archives: «Every Wise Man Stumbles», «Adventures», based on Nikolai Gogol’s novel «Dead Souls», «Farewell…and Applaud!», «Sacred Fire», «Amadeus», « The Last Ones Standing ». You could try to catch them on “Kultura” (if you are lucky) or download them from the boundless expanses of the worldwide web:-)
Where could I buy the “Hooligan” CD?
At Art-Piter performances both «Hooligan» и «Cyrano de Bergerac» CDs are available to purchase (priced at 500 rubles). You may also find it in larger bookstores and/or video-audio shops, i.e. branches of «Media Markt», «Bookberry», etc.
