Iván -off - Theater at La Casa de la Portera

What a great theater experience Iván-Off at La Casa de la Portera, one of My little Madrid best addresses for culture, undoubtedly!

Why? I'll try to be as convincing as possible, but I don't want to reveal much. Better you go and get your own opinion!

The fact of entering into the apartment of the old concierge of an appartment building in Lavapies, the very kitsch decoration, (here some examples of  decoration) immediately crushed my heart!! And furthermore, the closeness to the actors while playing and the limited public attending to the play, no more than 25 people per play, encourages the feeling of being part of the play. An extraordinary work of the actors in Chejov play "Ivanov", renamed for Teatro de la Portera as: "Iván-off".

The play included a touch of Madrilenian insight and a Russian drama in a Lavapies apartment works fantastic!

Do Please Go, It's a command!!

Book in advance it's very popular. Important to be there 30 minutes before the play starts, in case you're late no one will open the door.
