The Saudi capital, Riyadh, has surely witnessed some magical days lately as the Riyadh Season kick-started. A number of Egyptian stars took their theatrical works to the Kingdom for exclusive premieres. As these plays made waves towards the end of 2019, we can't wait already for them to be shown in Egyptian theatres in 2020.
Here are three Egyptian plays that we're eagerly looking forward to.
#1 Alaa El-Din
The Disney classic was turned into an Egyptian play that's characterized as a comical musical performance. With the latest technologies and special effects, as well as Egyptian talents, Alaa El-Din is expected to take the Arab theatre to a whole new level.
Alaa El-Din is starring Ahmed Ezz, Tara Emad, Mohamed Tharwat, Hisham Ismail, Samy Maghawry, Islam Ibrahim, and Mohamed Gomaa. The play is directed by Magdy El Hawary.
#2 3otl Fany
Egypt's favourite comedy duo, Hisham Maged and Chico, will hit the stage for the first time ever, presenting 3otl Fany, in the Riyadh Season.
3otl Fany is also starring Ayten Amer, Akram Hosni, and Nashwa Mustafa. The play is written by Amir Taimeh and directed by Utaka.
Superstar Ahmed Mekky took his famed fictional character, Hazal2oum, to the theatre after its notable success in La Tarago3 Wala Esteslam and in El Keber Awi.
Hazal2oum is starring Ahmed Mekky, Bayoumi Fouad, Mohamed Sallam, and Mohamed Mahmoud.
