"With demonic glint and flamboyant gestures, Volok certainly lives up to the title..."
"Russian-born actor Ilia Volok is amazing to watch...is as good as it gets."
- LA STAGE TIMES
This talented actor takes on the adaptation, written by Nikolai Gogul, with an intense range of emotions, both scary, and at times, surprisingly tender.
This version of Gogul's tale will inspire many emotions, empathy for the lowly character, as Ilia brings sensitivity and tenderness to the desperate yearning for a woman of distinction. Ilia also laces his characterization with humor and an intense physicality, even, as he holds delusions of royal grandeur.
