The Makers Lab production company based in Russia’s St. Petersburg is negotiating with Hollywood star Jim Carrey about his participation in The Master and Margarita musical staged at the LDM Theater, the company’s General Producer Irina Afanasyeva told TASS on Wednesday.
“Carrey saw the Master and Margarita musical at the LDM Theater. The talks we have been holding for a long time are now in their final stage. We hope to sign [a contract] before the end of February, so he will perform at our theater,” Afanasyeva said.
Carrey is supposed to play one of the main characters, Voland, the producer elaborated, adding that details of the talks were not meant for public consumption.
