Theatres and theatrical managers during the Interwar. Andreas Makedos
Summary:
Andreas Makedos was one of the most important theatre managers of the light music theatre during the Interwar period in Athens – Greece. His presence and his activity from the beginning of his career in 1923 until his death in 1944, contributed decisively to the progress of local theatre. His main characteristics were his contradictory character, his complex personality and his entrepreneurial spirit.
Andreas Makedos brought together and worked with the most important playwrights, composers, set-designers, choreographers and actors and tried to make them reach their full creative potential offering them all the available means and resources. In a period when theatre audiences in Athens were used to sloppy and cheap productions, he insisted on diligence and brought on stage elaborate spectacles with attention to every single detail. The quality of the set, the costumes, the ballet, the orchestra, and the integrity of the casting had been unprecedented in the history of the greek light music theatre.
With the dominant theatrical genres in Interwar Greece being the operetta and the revue, the way of theatre evolution passes unquestionably from the stage of the light musical theater, which leads the artistic and technological developments. Surpassing the lack of infrastructure, resources and theatrical tradition, Andreas Makedos send the greek theatre in orbit towards the achievement of the "European equivalent", for the first time in its history.
