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

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
