Gregorij von Leitis

Secret Friends

by Rudolf Herfurtner based on the novel Alan and Naomi by Myron Levoy
Opening Night on December 7, 1995;
Theaterkeller of the Landestheater Linz / Austria
as free-lance guest director

Neues Volksblatt: “Guest director Gregorij von Leïtis, in his production of ‘Secret Friends’ at the Linzer Theaterkeller, has made transparent from the characters’ state of mind, in an enchanting to moving way, that poetry which is not to be found in the text, but behind the text of Rudolf Herfurtner’s play.”

Salzburger Nachrichten: “Gregorij von Leïtis, as guest director, offers a touchingly empathetic human performance. This is expressed especially in the portrayal of the Jewish boy Alan, played by Christian Higer, who finds poignant tones and nuances with his ventriloquist puppet Charlie.”
