Since Oleg Menshikov became the artistic director of the Yermolova Theater, scandals, showdowns and trials have not stopped in the institution. Then the troupe accused him of infringing on the actors, promoting his invited friends to the performances and paying them crazy fees, while his employees were left without roles and money.
This was followed by a scandal with illegal dismissals, then 13 reduced actors achieved reinstatement through the courts. Afterwards, the wards said that Menshikov was wise with accounting, writing out undeservedly high fees for himself. Now there is a riot on the ship again – the institution has stopped paying salaries. One of the actresses confirmed this fact and shared that the troupe is again preparing an appeal to the court.
In addition to clashes with the artists, Menshikov is also attacked from the other flank. The procurator discovered that the cladding on the facade had collapsed on the historical building of the Yermolova Theater, and in addition, it turned out that the artistic director had re-planned the premises inside, and this is prohibited. So, Oleg Menshikov again expects a series of court cases and fines.
