"Absolute Clarity" by Sophia Romma, directed by Yuri Joffe--a noted, Stanislavsky prize-winning director from Moscow's Mayakovsky Academic Theater--will be presented by ArtVoice and Cinema Anastasia as an Off-Broadway production at the Players Theater, 115 Macdougal Street, January 25 to February 25. The play is loosely based on "She, in the absence of love and death" by the noted Russian author Edvard Radzinski (1977). Radzinski's tragicomedy, originally set in a Soviet cityscape of the 1970s, has been re-imagined in the present-day Lower East Side, where its teenage heroine, a "white raven" and rebellious young artist, searches for love and absolution. The company of ten features a live onstage jazz band.
