|Theater named after veteran actor Jamshid Mashayekhi||
TEHRAN – A number of theatrical figures attended the Saturday opening ceremony of a theater, which has been named after veteran actor Jamshid Mashayekhi.
The hall belongs to the Maan Artistic Creation Center, a private art institute located on Vali-e Asr Boulevard, the Persian service of ISNA reported on Sunday.
Hadi Marzban, Qotbeddin Sadeqi, Manijeh Mahamedi, Masud Delkhah and Mohammadreza Khaki were among those who attended the event.
The ceremony began with the screening of a documentary in which theatrical figures, including Iraj Raad, Sohrab Salimi, Hadi Marzban and Rahmat Amini, briefly discuss Mashayekhi and his artistic works and character.
Speaking in the opening ceremony, Marzban said that one can hardly talk about Mashayekhi in words, and that several books must be written about the actor.
Stage actor and director Qotbeddin Sadeqi made a brief speech saying that Mashayekhi’s acting stands in a lofty national position, revealing his efforts and creativity over many decades.
The ceremony continued with the staging of part of the play “What Happened That I Ate the Snake” by Golbarg Abutorabian.
Speaking briefly, Mashayekhi also said that he pays attention to morality more than anything else, “a veteran is the individual who has good morals.”
A plaque of honor was next handed to Mashayekhi by actor Parviz Purhosseini.
