From The Director's Prism: E. T. A. Hoffmann and the Russian Theatrical Avant-Garde by Dassia N. Posner

  • Photograph of Samuil Vermel as Pierrot, his costume white with black pompoms, standing, head back, with a hand on a chair.

    Vermel, a recurrent author in Meyerhold’s journal Love for Three Oranges, was one of the many theorist-practitioners of his day. He was an alternate actor for the role of Pierrot, more typically played by Nikolai Tseretelli, at the Moscow Kamerny Theatre.
