Ambitious, Unfinished, Quirky, Strong performances, Uneven

See it if you’d like to see an adaptation of a classic that goes its own way even as it builds on the original (& 1 other modern adaptation).

Don't see it if you like your classics pure, or your productions big budget, or your theater experiments polished. Read more

Awkward staging, Peculiar translation, Slow, Disappointing, Banal

See it if you are curious about this young company or if you want to see what can happen in the modernization of a Greek classic.

Don't see it if you know the original. The writer has added cell phones but lost the balance between passion and order that makes the play exciting.
