Press reviews

The premiere with The Picture of Dorian Gray was an obvious triumph. As the show is going forward to the end you discover new and new expressions of perfection. The performance is not a simply theatrical retelling of the story, but a very inspired and profound original lay-out of the damnation of Dorian Gray.
Gabriela Hurezean – Naţional, October 7, 2004
The Picture of Dorian Gray had fascinated us by the original proposal of theatre and dance, spectacularly sustained by the acting and set design. Through this show, Odeon Theatre imposes the expected event for the opening of the theatrical season in Bucharest , a sumptuous production, innovative in formula, thrilling by the inspiration of Razvan Mazilu, its cast and brilliant scenic images.
Ileana Lucaciu – România Liberă (add), November 18, 2004
Baroque, sophisticated, luxurious. It is a show that tells, through all its pores, about seduction, and this seduction has many types and various implications.
Marie Louise Semen –, November 2004
The Picture of Dorian Gray in Galgoțiu and Mazilu's vision, is all about image, vision, color and perfumes. It is hedonistic yet deep intrusion into the human soul. The show truly reflects Wilde's arty and luxurious way of living and writing. It is a real treat for art lovers.
