WHAT IS TO BE DONE?




Virtual Vertigo


Josef Rusnak's 1998 sci-fi flick "The Thirteenth Floor" explores two parallel realities wired into one another with deadly results. The virtual world here is 1937 Los Angeles, a simulacrum devised by a computer tycoon and one that confuses all the real-timers, not least its creator Hannon Fuller (played by Armin Muller-Stahl). The film shows in English at 7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday at the American House of Cinema, Radisson Slavjanskaya Hotel, 2 Berezhkovskaya Naberezhnaya. Tel. 941-8747. Metro: Kievskaya.


Shine and Refurbishment


The Dostoevsky Apartment-Museum is up and running again after a three-year break for restoration works. The visitor can see both the flat in which the writer lived as a child and adolescent from 1823 to 1837 and the hospital wing in which his father worked. The museum is located at 2 Ulitsa Dostoevskogo. Tel. 281-1085. Metro: Tsvetnoi Bulvar. Open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day except Monday and Tuesday.


Revival for Tale of Survival


Head to Yury Lyubimov's Taganka Theater to see the show that christened one of Moscow's greatest theaters 35 years ago. Lyubimov has revived Bertolt Brecht's "The Good Woman of Setzhuan," the tale of the kind-hearted prostitute who pretends to be her imaginary evil cousin to survive. The play shows Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Taganka Theater, Taganskaya Ploshchad. Tel. 915-1015/1217. Metro: Taganskaya.
