From the history of “Snuff”

“Snuff” was born, so to speak, illegitimate child. It was in the mid-1970s, when a successful actor and Director Oleg Tabakov decided to create his own Studio.

Having at its disposal a cellar where he stored the coal, the Studio adapted it for the theatre, where they started to play shows, which was a resounding success with audiences and critics. In a stuffy little zalchik flocked all intellectual Moscow, feeling that it was here, in the basement, on Clean ponds, is a small island of freedom.

However, the decree establishing the Moscow theatre under the direction of Tabakov came only in 1986. The first performance that “Snuff” played, already having official status was “the Chair” by then the acclaimed novel by Yuri Polyakov “state of emergency of regional scale” – about the fate of smart and gifted man who throwaway their talent at the DPC. The Prime Minister fell on March 1, 1987. This date became an official birthday of the theatre under the direction of Tabakova.
