|Visiting Mr. Green has been one of
the great successes in Brazilian
theatre history, seen by hundreds of
thousands of theatregoers over the
past 20 years.
The original production opened in
2000, starring beloved actor Paulo
Autran, who also did the translation,
playing opposite Cássio Scapi,
directed by Elias Andreato and
produced by Alexandre Dórea
Ribeiro. It played for a year and a
half in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and
on tour throughout Brazil. Paulo
Autran won both the APCA and the
Shell Best Actor award for his
portrayal of Mr. Green.
In 2005, a revival ran for another full
year, including a tour of Portugal,
again starring Paulo Autran and Cássio
Scapin, then Dan Stulbach.
A revival starring Sergio Mamberti
and Ricardo Gelli, directed by Cassio
Scapin and produced by Carlos
Mamberti toured Brazil from
2015-2019, and was invited to be part
of the Chekhov International Theatre
Festival in Moscow in July, 2019.
