Theater troupe was created in 1993 by a group of graduates from the Variety Show Department at the Russian Institute of Theatrical Arts (GITIS). The theater’s director and screenwriter is Sergey Petreykov. The theater’s actors and “assistants” in creating ideas and screenplays are Leonid Barats, Alexander Demidov, Kamil Larin, and Rostislav Khait. The theater’s portfolio includes five television shows, 14 theatrical performances, 11 television comedies, three cartoons, two series, and five books. Here’s what colleagues and journalists say about Quartet I: “The troupe firmly stands with all eight feet on the ground”, “They differ from many of their counterparts that ‘earn their keep’ using the humorous genre by their unique style of authenticity and closeness to the realities of life”.
