Yuri Mrakadi and Marianne Khalat in a monologue satirizing regional and national corruption
Lebanese announcer Tony Baroudi along with Marianne Khalat, Yuri Mrakadi, and Mario Baseel have come together in the play "Monologue" to give a satirical view of the current political conditions in Lebanon and the world. Each one will have approximately 25 minutes on stage to talk freely and without restrictions about all the corruption that he/she feel have clouded the region.
According to the London based daily, Al Sharq Al Awsat, the idea of the play is taken from monologue plays commonly done on American theater stages most commonly performed by actors like Robin Williams, Eddy Murphy and many other well-known actors in the US.
Marianne and Mario have previously performed such roles where they criticize politics in a comical sense, but the play will be a first of its kind experience for Tony and Yuri. Tony revealed that the play will be performed at the Metropolitan Hotel in Beirut in the very near future, and that the script was written in a way which he regards as being very similar to a script he once performed as a sport's broadcasters.
The play written by Mark Kadeeh, is expected to find a huge success, with regards to the frustrations and anger people feel with war on Iraq and the Arab countries lack of finding ways to help. –Albawaba.com
