Petrosyan's laughter is kind laughter. Even when he smiles through tears, when he speaks about serious problems, when he makes poignant remarks about something in us - all the same his laughter serves the good. The audience often notices this feature of the performer. It is also necessary to remember that art always has to serve good. If it doesn't serve good, it isn't Art anymore. All great humorists were great humanists. Petrosyan's laughter makes him not only a great professional, but also the citizen, thus a great artist. All the people coming to Petrosyan's concerts, with their laughter and tears, applause and searches for "an extra ticket", unambiguously means that they trusts the performer and share his point of view.
Though Petrosyan has been on the stage for many years, he is still the same - vigorous, young, ridiculous and terrible, touching and true - yes, true. He is faithful to the craft which he believes to be the meaning of his life, faithful to theater where he was born as the Actor, faithful to precepts of his teachers, and he learned the profession from such remarkable masters as Rina Zelyonaya, Leonid Utesov, Alexey Alekseev, Lev Mirov, Maria Mironova. He is faithful to audience and always has with him the same irreconcilability to the evil, violence, falseness, self-discipline, professionalism, actor's charm and a soft smile, respect and love to those who are on the other side of the stage.
Today he is called the Master. Behind this deserved title is the stage culture of the Artist, his civil convictions, social vigilance, courage and fidelity to himself and the art.
In one of Petrosyan's performances there are such words: "Our happiness is that we find forces through tears to smile and make each other laugh that I also try to do together with my characters in the performance Country of Lemoniya, Village of Petrosyaniya. Don't look for this village on the map, it is in my medical record, here, in the heart". These words say everything.
Evgeny Petrosyan is king in his kingdom. Everything here is his way: the Petrosyan language, the Petrosyan jokes, the Petrosyan manner to tell the person the honest truth, without humiliating human dignity. Because if you humiliate and smut what makes the person, it is not humor and not satire, but scandal. And for this purpose it isn't obligatory to go to theater. What is especially pleasant is that in his kingdom Evgeny Petrosyan sits not on the throne, but at the desk. Sometimes it seems that he also sleeps behind it, because he it is constantly at work. The throne in his kingdom is for the Spectator. And if dramatic actors say: "His Majesty the Theatre", Evgeny Petrosyan says: "His Majesty - the Spectator!".
His partner in life and on stage, the unsurpassed Elena Stepanenko, is a match for him. Lately actors have often performed together.
