Alejandro Doria's famous film comes in a theatrical version by Ciro Zorzoli. Campi will play the role of Mamá Cora, immortalized by Antonio Gasalla.


This Friday, the first image of the cast of the stage version of Waiting for the Float, which opens on April 12 at the Broadway theater, was finally released.

With a stellar cast, this new version of the Argentine film classic directed by

Alejandro Doria

has been creating great expectations among audiences since its announcement.

With this first photo of the actors in character,

the idea is renewed that the works will remain faithful to the original version

, which is so engraved in the hearts of all Argentines.

Everyone hopes that, under the direction of Ciro Zorzoli, the work will survive the difficult task of adapting such a beloved classic, with such iconic phrases.

The cast is really promising, with Campi at the helm, who, in the role of Mama Cora, will try to wear the shoes of the emblematic character that Antonio Gasalla brought to the screen.

The new version will also star

Paola Barrientos

(Elvira Romero de Musicardi),

Pablo Rago

(Sergio Musicardi),

Ana Katz

(Susana),

Sebastián Presta

(Jorge Musicardi),

Valeria Lois

(Nora) and

Mariano Torre

(Antonio Musicardi).

The actors will have to face the great challenge of erasing from their minds the burned-in image they have of the characters, to be able to rediscover them together with the audience and put their own imprint on them.

The famous Doria film comes to the theater with a luxury cast.

With performances from Thursday to Sunday, the new

Waiting for the Float

promises a renewed version, but at the same time manages to maintain the essence of this story that is already considered an icon of the River Plate identity.

And that point is going to be very important, since this is a story that owes its success to the affection of its audience, who was responsible for positioning it in the place it occupies today.

This happened because, days after its release, this classic had been defenestrated by critics, and it was the people who gave it a chance.

The challenge of reviving a classic

The director of the play, Ciro Zorzoli, assumed that this play is a risky proposal, due to the affection that people have for the original version. However, he stated that the key is to leave aside what already was, and start from scratch.

Paola Barrientos will renew the role of Elvira Romero from Musicardi.

"As in any work, you have to get rid of previous ideas, get rid of preconceptions, find the spirit of team play, appropriate the material. We have already been warned. We will see what it is like to explore the relationship with an audience that already knows the dialogue," he said. Zorzoli in an exclusive interview by Marina Zucchi for

Clarín

.

The story that began on the stage, and revolutionized cinema, returns once again to the theater, hoping that along with the story, the audience's laughter will be renewed.

And fans of the original are waiting.

Fans of

Waiting for the Float

are

such fans that there is everything around the classic: from merchandising to a complete museum

.

And that makes the pressure on this new version very great, and the expectation even greater.

Tickets go on sale next Monday, March 4, through www.ticketek.com.ar.

They can also be purchased in person, at the Broadway Theater box office (Av. Corrientes 1155).
