Ambitious, Indulgent, Terrible media production, Brilliant lead, High concept

See it if you're interested in modern views of ancient myths. It starts classical then goes wild reflecting various issues using TV segments and music

Don't see it if you like your myths traditional. The original plot is lost in the elaborations. Terrible sound system and screen choice weakens their use. Read more

Exhausting, Pretentious, Incongruous, Disappointing, Contrived

See it if you want to support the young players & company; are curious about "modern" takes on classics;like valiant efforts in experimental theater

Don't see it if you prefer a successful new version of the old Greek tale, with competent, classical acting, an understandable script & professional staging Read more

Medea in a poetic & modern take, Greek chorus, Strong actress, Lovely dance & special effects

See it if You’d like a Medea made of earth kissed by dew, whose home is built by walls between (not around), whose kids are represented by lobsters.

Don't see it if You don’t like rich language, a modern spin, a woman lustful for another verse, w/ takes from Casa Blanca, Lucille Ball & Cat in the Hat. Read more
