A once-scandalous Russian silent movie gets a beguiling stage adaptation in Bed and Sofa at Fort Lauderdale’s Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Based on a 1927 film by Russian director Abram Room, this enchanting three-character “silent movie opera” takes place in a cramped apartment during a Moscow housing crisis. Ludmilla lives a life of comfortable complacency with her obliviously despot husband, Kolya, but when Kolya’s handsome comrade Volodya visits the country, Kolya offers him the couple’s sofa – and Ludmilla offers him an invitation to her bed. With nowhere to go, Kolya takes to the sofa and attempts to distract the two lovers from their bed with an endless game of checkers. Every line of dialogue is sung in Bed and Sofa, as comedy, music and sexual politics merge in a production both funny and touching.
