For New York, the 1990s marked a period of renaissance for Times Square, known as the Disneyfication. Then one of the most dangerous streets in the city - 42 Street - replaced its broken streetlights with neon lights. Behind the curtain of the Barrymore Theatre, located on 47 Street, you can see what the 1990s meant for Russia.

Don't miss the limited show PATRIOTS – Rupert Goold's gripping Olivier Award-winning production that reveals how Russia's post-Soviet machinations continue to shape our world even today. The faces are still the same: Abramovich, Putin, Berezovsky. The production combines historical drama, heart-warming soap opera and satire on real life. Screenings at the Barrymore Theater will run until June 23.

The plot is familiar, so are the characters

In 1991, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the new Russia began to belong to oligarchs, in particular billionaire Boris Berezovsky. When it came to identifying a possible successor to Boris Yeltsin, Berezovsky turned to the little-known deputy mayor of St. Petersburg, Vladimir Putin.

Soon, Putin's ruthless rise threatens Berezovsky's rule, setting off a gripping, almost Shakespearean confrontation between two powerful but fatally flawed men.

“I came to watch the performance because of the situation in Europe. Putin is leading Russia in a very bad direction. He's aggressive. So I wonder if its logic can be understood through a theatrical performance,” said one theater visitor.

In the shockingly timely historical production of PATRIOTS from Peter Morgan, creator of Netflix's The Crown, Tony and Emmy Award nominee Michael Stuhlbarg plays Berezovsky and Will Keane takes on the role of Putin. Tickets for the Broadway production about the political intrigues of Russia in the 1990s can be purchased on the website
