The Official Preview of “It’s me, Annabel”


English: On Sunday, the 7th of May 2017, Lightwave Theatre Company had the official preview of its newest production, “It’s me, Annabel” with a theatre hall full of people and a big waiting list at the European Cultural for Youth and UNESCO “Nicolae Balcescu” Center in Bucharest. The show features characters like The Tick-Tock Man with the voice of Constantin Cotimanis, a great Romanian actor, and a beautifuly text written by a fabulous poet, Iulian Tanase. It took almost two years for this production to be finished, Lightwave Theatre having this objective to come up with something new every 12 months.

“It’s me, Annabel” is about a 10 year-old girl from a disfunctional family who loves her very much, but with arguing parents. She tries to understand their fights through her imagination, creating an imaginary friend by the look of her passed and loving grandpa, but with the ability to manipulate time.

The Official Preview has been like a flight-test for a brand new airplane, observing the audience’s reactions, and most viewers had tears in their eyes, so “mission acomplished” for Lightwave Theatre Company.

Everything that had to be done in the workshop has been done. Now, the show has to be performed on a regular basis in order to achieve Lightwave Theatre’s quality standards for live acts.

Romana: Duminica, 7 mai 2017, Lightwave Theatre Company a avut avanpremiera celei mai noi productii “Sunt eu, Annabel” intr-o sala de spectacol plina si cu o lista de asteptare impresionanta la Centrul Cultural European de Tineret si pentru UNESCO “Nicolae Balcescu” din Bucuresti. Spectacolul contine personaje precum Domnul Timp, care beneficiaza de vocea lui Constantin Cotimanis, si un text superb scris de poetul Iulian Tanase. A durat aproape doi ani ca productia sa fie finalizata, Lightwave Theatre avand obiectivul de a veni cu ceva nou la fiecare 12 luni.

“Sunt eu, Annabel” este despre o fetita de 10 ani dintr-o familie disfunctionala ce o iubeste enorm, dar cu parinti care se cearta. Ea incearca sa le inteleaga conflictele prin filtrul imaginatiei sale, creand un prieten imaginar cu infatisarea bunicului ei iubit si decedat, dar care poate manipula timpul.

Avanpremiera a fost ca un zbor de test pentru un avion nou-nout. A fost ocazia perfecta pentru a testa reactiile publicului, iar cei mai multi spectatori au avut lacrimi in ochi, asadar “misiune indeplinita” pentru Lightwave Theatre Company.

Tot ce a trebuit facut in atelier, a fost facut. Acum, spectacolul trebuie sa se joace in mod regulat pentru a atinge standardele de calitate Lightwave Theatre pentru reprezentatii live.
