April 1997 marks dramatic star Sergio Viotti's 70th birthday and his 40th year on the Brazilian stage. Staying active and taking a new turn in his long career, he wrote and plays the lead in the comedyHumoresque, directed by Dorival Carper in Sao Paulo. "I´m so tired of playing dramatic roles like the Shakespearean ones," Viotti told Playbill On-Line. "Now in my old age, the important thing is to make people laugh. . ."
