The parody genre actor Alexander Peskov shared with KP his memories of the first meeting with Alla Pugacheva. They turned out to be unforgettable.
This happened in Yalta in 1995. During the concert, the artist felt a slight commotion in the hall, and when he went backstage he was told: "She has arrived." And also asked to play "softer". The name was not named, apparently, they considered that the artist himself guessed. However, he turned out to be not so quick-witted and portrayed Pugacheva in full. This sketch is remembered by many - depicting the Prima Donna, the artist diligently clubfoot his legs and clumsily descends into the hall, sticking out his buttocks.
After finishing the concert, the satisfied artist came to the dressing room, opened a bottle of champagne and was ready to relax, when the door opened and Alla Borisovna appeared on the threshold. Peskov's jaw dropped. In the hands of Pugacheva was a huge bouquet (later it turned out that Kirkorov bought all the flowers in the area), she threw it on the floor and said: "Peskov, this is for you." This was the first thing the star said. And the words engraved in the memory of the actor for life.
Out of fright, Peskov forgot to offer the singer a chair and for 40 minutes they stood talking. Leaving Pugacheva said: “Why am I so little? Think about it. " And the artist thought, creating the play "Harlequin", in which Alla Borisovna acted as a prototype.
