Marika Krevata (Greek: Μαρίκα Κρεβατά; 1910 – September 14, 1994) was a Greek actress of theatre and film.


Marika was the daughter of Stamatis Krevatas (musician) and Sofias (actress in Constantinople (now Istanbul), of the Panteliadis). She was born in Athens in 1910. Krevata lost her father and her little sister Thaleia when she was 2. Her childhood years were poor. She first appeared in theatre at an early age. In the beginning she took part in companies which toured the Greek outdoors along with children's acts including Daskalitsa (Δασκαλίτσα) by Nicodemi next to Marika Kotopouli. She later appeared in operettas by Georgios Xydis which included her first substantial appearance in the company with Rozalias Nika. She spent time at various theatre companies, including Manos Filippidis, which became famous in the musical theatre of old Athens and Krevata played Eva in the same opera by Lehár in the Lyric Scene.

Krevatas also wrote Pipitsa based on the work of Prinea-Mastora.

Original text:
Πίτσα, Πιπίτσα, Πηνελοπίτσα,
απ΄ το καιρό, παιδί μου, που ΄γινες κομμάτι
να μας πεθάνεις όλους, το ΄βαλες γινάτι!
Καημένη Πίτσα, Πηνελοπίτσα,
θα μας πεθάνεις μα το ναί
αφότου σήκωσες ψηλά τον αμανέ!
English text (first two):
Pitsa, Pitsa, Pinelopitsa,
from the time my child, you are torn into pieces

In the early 1930s, she met Angelos Mavropoulos, protagonist of operas in which three months after her marriage was divorced, six months later, she raised her first child Gelly Mavropoulou. She loved her second husband Giorgos Gavriilidis (died in 1982) as much as life and as much as her work.

Marika retired from theatre in 1972. She was left alone and spoke French. She died on September 14, 1994 at the age of 84 at the Athens Clinic. She is buried at the Kokkinos Milos Cemetery.
