Vakhtangov’s “Cooks” was a demonstration of acting skills which makes a masterpiece out of nothing.
The year 1959 gave the concluding accord to the “kolkhoz” comedy of the end of the forties — “The Cook” of A. Sofronov enjoying such sincere and simple-hearted good graces of spectators that Sofronov wrote a continuation, and in two years “The Cook Married” gathered full house again.
All the talent of Ruben Simonov, easy, dancing, festive, all the glamor and temper of the wonderful, lifeful young generation of the Vakhtangists the theatre didn’t spare to make a cheerful and mischievous performance out of an empty comedy. In “The Cook Married”, the blueness of river became even more dazzling, the clouds even curlier, water-melons even bigger. This time, the intrigue twirled around a young actress Masha who arrived from the capital. This was the debut of Ludmila Maksakova.
Premiere was on 14 October 1961
