The Roma Music Theater in Warsaw will continue staging hit musicals this autumn and is also unveiling several new shows.

The highly successful Deszczowa piosenka (Singin’ in the Rain) and Aladyn jr (Aladdin Jr.) will be performed on the Roma’s main stage, while most of this season’s premieres will take place on the Nova Stage.

The first new show, Całujcie mnie wszyscy w odbiornik (Kiss My Radio!), premiered Oct. 4. Written and directed by Jerzy Satanowski, the play is set in a Polish Radio studio, where newscasters inform listeners about events in Poland’s postwar history.

The next premiere on the Nova Stage, on Nov. 15, is a new take on Franz Kafka’s The Trial. The new version, written and directed by Roma Theater actor Jakub Szydłowski, turns the classic novel into a musical, which, according to Roma director Wojciech Kępczyński, “could prove extremely interesting.”

On Valentine’s Day, the Roma will premiere ¦licznotka w lesie (Beauty in the Woods), directed by Łukasz Czaja and starring Katarzyna Zielińska in the main role. The Roma is also planning to stage Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Tell Me On a Sunday.

Then, in late spring, audiences will see The Last Five Years directed by Cornelius Baltus, who previously directed The Dance of the Vampires, another Roma hit musical.

Performances on the Nova Stage will include shows with which Roma audiences are familiar, such as children’s musical The Little Prince, which this season will be staged for the 300th time. Audiences will also see Adonis ma go¶cia (Adonis Has a Visitor), Berlin, czwarta rano (Berlin, Four in the Morning) and Zdobyć, utrzymać, porzucić (Seduce, Keep, Dump).

Apart from musicals, the Roma Theater will host a series of jazz concerts entitled Krzysztof Herdzin Presents.

Meanwhile, Roma director Kępczyński has revealed his plans for the next season. He says the Roma will become the first theater in the world to stage a non-replica version of the smash hit musical Mamma Mia! with songs made famous by ABBA.
