Konstantin Khabenskiy: «First of all I really like these stories. It’s very important for me that the audience breathing gives the opportunity to get assesment of the capacities ot the author and of the actor. We feel it on stage both. The most important thing is that readings are very popular among the audience so it needs the live performance and communication».
