75 minutes of squirm-inducing overacting

See it if I dont know why you would. It was unclear whether the audience hated it as much as I did. Inappropriate giggles but good applause.

Don't see it if you dont like mugging and shouting as undifferentiated expressions of anger, pain and exposition.

Talkin' Broadway
August 29th, 2016

"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."
