In 2016, the authors of the production claimed that the guest of the musical would be actor Kevin Spacey. He did not come.
February 5 in the official group of the musical “The Master and Margarita” in “VKontakte” appeared an announcement about the upcoming participation of American actor Jim Carrey in the production. A poster was attached to the recording, on which Kerry’s face was attached to a different artist. A day later, the announcement was removed, and records appeared in the group mentioning the musical in the media.
TASS , Izvestia , RIA Novosti , RBC , Life and other publications reported the pre-arrival artist . Administration Theater “LDM. The new scene ” called the actions of producers cheap PR and old-fashioned tricks.
The authors of the musical made a selection of news bulletins from federal TV channels, which told about Kerry’s arrival to the theater. Plots released “The Fifth” , “NTV” , “Moscow 24” and the TV show “Evening Urgant . ” Only in Urgant this news was treated with irony.
Ivan Ozhogin, who plays the role of Woland, said that information about the arrival of a Hollywood star should not be believed. “This is not the first news of this kind,” – said the artist. Anastasia Makeeva, who played the role of Margarita, said that this is a marketing ploy of the organizers.

In 2016, the same production company staged a similar production, but in a different theater. Then the producers said that her guest would be American actor Kevin Spacey. Tickets were sold, but Spacey did not come.
