"If you liked Madeline Miller’s bestseller 'Circe,' you should really catch the last four performances of Sophie Amieva and Suzanne Bagert’s 'Medusa Volution' at happylucky no.1. Just as Miller allows the nymph to describe in her own words her special skill set (turning men into pigs), the playwrights and their all-female Samvia Theatre group directed by Amiva create a strong collective voice untangling Greek/Roman mythology’s if looks could kill eternal bad hair day."

"Sophie’s re-examining of this Greek tragedy is quite timely...'Volution' finally gives our female archetypes a chance to tell their story, reassess the version we know and asks a lot of questions...'Volution' has more substance in its one act than some presidential administrations. The explosive actors, (multicultural mavens, really) flow and are extremely adept in giving you their all."
