"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."
