 The island where this Robinson Crusoe of Gellu Naum and Ada Milea castaway is full of traps – paradoxical traps, ludic ones,  of a game that nourishes from its own substance. The Diary is a circular text, ironical and auto-ironical, similar to the lyrics Ada Milea composes, lyrics that can be hummed long after, without losing their charm. This charm consists in the capacity of projecting us, the ones that are outside the stage, right in the center of it and allowing us, gracefully, of identifying with any of the characters. With one or the other, or with each and one of them, one at a time. And this is because, this musical full of zest and candor, talks about love, fidelity, innocence, betrayal, loneliness and, most important, about the healing power of fantasy. Which one of us is unfamiliar with these “themes”?

Mihai Mănuțiu

The Island of Gellu Naum is a text full of comical sadness. Each time I “visit” it, toghether with other “guests”, everything is radically transformed depending on ewach of the people involved. I am extremely glad I’ve worked with the team from Odeon and I cannot wait for you to get yourself naum-ized, măniuţiu-zided, gavriliu-zied, damian-izied and adamilea-zied.
