Staging EUrope

Skantze, P. A.

"We get to the Lungotevere Papereschi late, but this is Rome and
we know the spettacolo will not begin on time. If we were going to the
theatre in New York, London or Munich, well then. Still we walk
quickly past the beautifully lit outdoor space that announces the
theatre even before one is in it, the soft candles on the ruined wall, the
milling about a makeshift bar. We round the corner of the theatre
where there is a huge queue pressed against a side of the building not
customarily used as an entrance."
