Intelligent, Uneven, Intense, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if you love Homer. The power of ancient storytelling is re-visited. The horrors of war are made vivid. People haven't changed through the ages.

Don't see it if you want an even performance. This starts-and-stops often, making full engagement difficult. Constant drinking is annoying. Very mannered.

Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if you are a fan of history, literature, thought, and Denis O'Hare.

Don't see it if are looking for something fluffy.

Entertaining, Great acting, Clever, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if Spare show in Albany - actor David Barlow tells the Iliad tale and relates it to our history of wars to the present. Great energy.

Don't see it if Great cellist accompaniment makes this an unusual treat from something familiar.
