Constant turning to 4 sides, Homespun, Long/slow, Strong singing, Absorbing

See it if you'd like 2+ hrs w sincere, dedicated, warm, talented, enthusiastic actors. Updated O&E, not very insightful. Strg singing. Intimate space.

Don't see it if you want a gr story w well-integrated songs. Or creative staging (actors spin ard in center). Still, troupe eventually makes you invested.

Absorbing, Quirky, Entertaining, Great singing, Ambitious

See it if you'd like a fresh take on the Greek characters by an energetic cast doing it all - acting, singing, playing instruments, engaging audience.

Don't see it if you expect traditional presentation of these stories-here there's no set, costumes or props, but contemporary music is added. Bright lights!

Quirky, Passionate, Enchanting, Clever, Romantic

See it if Creative feminist version of the myth, set in modern times with depth of feeling, rich details, & wonderful music. Warm & enthusiastic.

Don't see it if Springsteen tunes w/some audience participation (I liked, but some may not). Lots of narration. Distracting lights shine on audience. Long.

Engaging, Intimate, Tuneful, Contemporary, Smart

See it if you’d like to experience an engaging, cotemporary, musical take on the Orpheus & Eurydice story.

Don't see it if you want a standard play: Here 4 performers narrate, sing & sometimes act as the stories of the 2 lead characters unfold & at last interact. Read more
