45 years after its first season in Mar del Plata, producer Carlos Rottemberg presented the theater program for summer 2023 at La Stampa, a renowned restaurant located in the Palermo neighborhood. After 3:00 p.m., the artists of the different proposals were arriving at the event that unfolded between flashes, talks with the press and hugs between colleagues. The producer dedicated a few words to his long career as an artistic manager: “Throughout all these years, we have had moments that have been good, others very good and others not so good. From the first day, our conviction to bet on the development of theatrical activity in the city remains valid”.

lost mind It has been on stage for a year and two months with uninterrupted performances every night, it was the first post-pandemic premiere and it is one of the great bets of the summer. “It was the first cast that got together to rehearse in person after the pandemic” assures its director José María Muscari, who, very proud of the repercussion of the work, focuses on the talent of its actresses: “Each one of them could star in a different work alone and the attractive thing is that the 5 are together. Every night in the theater excitement, shock and fun are generated with a very unique theme such as Alzheimer’s”.

The actresses of the cast were very friendly and assured that they were happy for the season and for “eating what Ana María Picchio is going to cook for us.” Julieta Ortega pointed out that the secret of the work is to combine something as tremendous as Alzheimer’s with humor. “That is the secret of the work and of life. I think that humor can be done with everything and everything is also a serious matter. The work has that discovery: it excites you and also makes you laugh out loud”, Ortega closes, enthusiastic about what is to come.

“There are many theatrical milestones that we experience in Mar del Plata. I produced the last season of Mirtha Legrand in Mar del Plata in 1989, there was hyperinflation and before opening – on December 23 – between 10 in the morning and 11 at night we raised the ticket price seven times. Yes, seven times in one day! An average of once every two hours! We got through that, corralito, pandemic, everything in 45 seasons”, recalls Rottenberg while continuing to entrust the coastal city with a new and attractive billboard and thus renew the expectation of the local summer.
