The slogan that was chosen for the 2016/2017 season of the Teatro Ambra Jovinelli is “Comedy Italian style. … AND MORE.” Building on the success of the previous season that has seen many sold-out, it leaves to the large, bearing in mind that over the years has characterized the programming of this theater, or the comic and popular. Where the term “popular” as stated the artistic director, he has to have a meaning totally positive. “Popular for me is something to appeal to everyone, which can run into various sectors of the public and is open to different interpretations. For us, often the choice of a popular artist becomes fly to bring representations that otherwise would find an audience more restricted “. In fact last season an artistic operation as that of Richard III starring Massimo Ranieri had indeed intended to lead to a wider audience a challenging text through the interpretation of a popular artist.
And in line with these assumptions, the new season will be opened by a musical show, “Largo al factotum” (from 20 to 30 October 2016), a fascinating and entertaining journey through the history of classical music, which will guide the viewer a popular and ironic artist as Elio, accompanied by renowned pianist Roberto Prosseda.

It is the story of a director, Thomas Novachek who is looking for an actress to the role of the protagonist in his adaptation of the novel Venus in Fur (Venus im Pelz, 1870) Austrian Leopold von Sacher-Masoch. At the end of a day of hearings are unnecessary Novachek That You are on the phone complaining about the inadequacy of the actresses, when suddenly bursts into the scene disturbing Wanda Jordan. At first glance it is completely out of the role, but the woman, with a great seductive power, is willing to do anything to be hired to interpret her almost namesake (Wanda von Dunajew) in the piece of Sacher-Masoch / Novachek. It will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Between director and actress is triggered an ambiguous role play. The two characters engage in a dramatic duel in cui the line between reality and fiction is getting thinner. This sexy dark comedy award-winning Ives (won several Tony Award on Broadway in 2013 and Polanski has directed a film version) will be staged in Italy for the first time ever, the interpretation of Sabrina Impacciatore and Valter Malosti, which also he will direct .

This play tells the grotesque story of Alfredo Beaumont, a normal man who as a result of an accident (for which it is responsible, even if acquitted) enters into a deep crisis and become a bad man. Suddenly, the company opens all doors: a merciless picture of the current human relations more and more marked on mechanisms of oppression and arrogance, where, as in the jungle, he won the most ferocious.

From February 23 to March 5, 2017 Laura Morante will play a contemporary Mirandolina in the comedy “Locandiera B & amp; B” written by Edoardo Erba and directed by Roberto Andò. The author Edoardo Erba revealed that the idea came from the discovery of a small Italian social phenomenon of our time: increasingly women over forty in possession of a property, to be able to keep expenses turn it into a Bed & amp; Breakfast, thus opening a new phase of their lives, usually following a loss (divorce, widowhood, dismissal), with an enthusiasm and vitality which, as pointed out by Erba, only women can have. Therefore we will see Laura Morante in an unusual way, performing a woman capable of reinventing herself, despite the loss of her husband and capital issues, with humor and sensuality. And just like the character of Goldoni able to extricate himself in different situations, thanks to a cunning and seductive power that not even know you had.

The brilliant Roman actress gives life to a group of strange characters who live in a tiny apartment and folk who are facing an unexpected event: the old Mario disappeared. No one knows anything for days. Kidnapped? He went away for free will? Dead? A tenant of the same building decided to alert the only institution that recognizes, and entrusted with the search: television. That’s why a journalist breaks into the lives of these characters, and forces them to show up, dig into their lives in search of a particular, a sign, a little guilty, and if he is lucky: a scoop. “The story runs through the testimonies of all present and the mishaps that happen to Wanda, his wife, the only one that tries to look on the streets of the city.
