See it if you are fascinated by Greek theater. This is a lean and intelligent production. The story still captivates. Bucket-list ready.
Don't see it if you dislike modern language in an ancient play. Or you want a nuanced Medea (Fazal wears). Other actors fare better. Surprisingly compelling
See it if you want to see some young actors attack a masterpiece with great aplomb
Don't see it if first reaction not for kids. but three youngsters in the audience seemed to enjoy it.. Reminder The Greeks kill offstage.
"The added emphasis on the place of women within the male-dominated power structure, and the condescending treatment of 'foreigners' give this production a decidedly contemporary ring. Those who prefer Greek tragedies to be performed in a more traditional way may be disappointed...But the story remains as powerful as ever, and the production, tightly edited to stay focused on the unfolding of the well-known plot, offers up a distinct and arguably valid slant to an old, old tale."
