Ivan Rom-Lebedev (1903-1991) was perhaps the leading cultural figure of Roma background during the Soviet period. A virtuoso guitarist, actor and writer, Rom-Lebedev became a founding director of the Gypsy theater in Moscow, Romen, in 1931. He devoted the rest of his life to the theater and wrote several dozen plays, some of which are still staged.
