The Miser and the Magic Hat
Giorgi Eristavi, Director Maia Chartolani

Vaudeville in 2 Acts


In the 19th century Tbilisi it is thus: the kind and the generous always wins against teh miser and the mean; the amusing and the witty makes fun of the reserved and the jealous, the lovers always do it their way and everything ends happily. However, happy end is nothing compaired to the tricks and the qui-pro-quo, that overwhelms the characters and the audience.
