From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Nikolay Pavlovich Okhlopkov (1900-1967) was the most brilliant of Meyerhold's disciples. He was born in Irkutsk, Siberia and started his acting career there in 1918. Since 1930, he directed the Realistic Theatre in Moscow, although his directing style was hardly realistic: he was the first to place spectators on the stage around the actors, in order to restore intimacy between the audience and the company. In 1938, his theatre was closed and he moved to the Vakhtangov Theatre. In 1943 he established the Mayakovsky Theatre, which continues his traditions to this day. Okhlopkov was awarded five USSR State Prizes.
