Messy, Entertaining, Confusing, Dated, Indulgent

See it if you enjoy seeing people try things and really want to support young, less experienced creators and performers.

Don't see it if you enjoy shows that are actually good and dislike shows that are not. Also, don't see it if you're not a patient person. Read more

August 13th, 2016

"The story is told both verbally, through Fulgham’s narration, and physically, through the movement of the remaining ensemble members. The movement, grounded in contemporary and modern dance, combines fluidity with bursts of energy to allow the performers to explore love in both their words and bodies...Though at times unclear, and extremely untraditional, 'Lamia' is more than a show—it creates a full theatrical experience that engages the audience in thought and action."

“Though ‘Lamia’ revels in theatrical poetry, it’s in fact the quieter moments that give this overburdened production its strength...The production’s earnest poeticism and interpretive movements often feel superfluous to the storytelling, or it's unclear what their narrative purpose is...There’s a lot of potential here, though, and with some re-balancing of the elements with an eye toward moving the story forward, ‘Lamia’s’ grand aspirations could easily be within reach.”

"A knockout production…There are few things cooler than a Greek myth sound-tracked by heartbreaking indie rock. Excellent music and techniques aside, the true victory of ‘Lamia’ is in its emphasis on humanizing a half-human mythology, while empowering the storyteller and the individual…The uplifting ending, especially bolstered forward by the powerful performances of Tomeski and Fulgham, leave a powerful impression…The play proves itself original, compelling, and heartfelt."
