About the Show

Part of FringeNYC: Medea’s back and she’s putting the pulse back in expulsion. Watch as this legendary infanticide vindicates her story through pounding electroPop and feminist Herstory. Armed with the waves of feminism, only she can dismantle the douche-bastions of the Patriarchy.

Funny, Intelligent, Relevant, Quirky, Great singing

See it if clever, electronic-music-and-estrogen-rich riffs on Medea turning into a passionate protest is for you

Don't see it if you prefer standard cabaret

Clever, Uneven, Entertaining, Cliched, Great singing

See it if You're looking for a solid idea but don't mind imperfect execution. The actors keep saying things are 'too on the nose' and they're right.

Don't see it if Classics isn't your thing or preachy bothers you.

August 20th, 2016

"A lively electro-pop opening with long narratives and a strong female vocal cast...'Girl Versus Corinth' is more a monologue-driven show with occasional singing; it needs more music to fit into the musical genre. Catie Davis's directions and stage movements are minimal...More musical numbers—perhaps as commentaries to the various plot tangents—would also help make everything more coherent and engaging."

"I enjoyed the verbose text of the historical figures. For the same reason, I found it peculiar that the show thought it necessary to explicitly identify its metaphors. Further points off for the worn-out we’re-in-a-Fringe-show-and-we-know-it and stagehand-turned-actor conventions, especially when the show could’ve stood on its own feet without relying on either...Although 'Girl Versus Corinth' doesn’t say anything new, it revamps established conventions in this electropop adaptation."

For a previous production

"This show is truly having an identity crisis...There are so many elements of this production that stand strong on their own but they do not quite mesh...The staging is best in the musical numbers, and the simple but powerful choreography by Jelani Alladin suits the show...They have assembled a talented batch of designers and performers for their ambitious first project. What fun to see a promising new musical in its infancy."
