Rewarding, Ambitious, Great writing

See it if you wish more of the classics were performed. A mega-arc of humanity’s attempt to control fate reduced to illusion & misguided vanity.

Don't see it if you don’t like poetry as scripts, the extremity of Greek drama, or theater that happens in attics and lofts. Read more

Young, Eager, Raw

See it if you want to see an eager mostly untried group of actors learning their craft

Don't see it if You want a polished production

Ambitious, Good but uneven acting, Interesting staging, Repetitious

See it if Good to see real classics again. Some terrific acting (some not so). But the staging was delightfully funky, in the loft of an old church.

Don't see it if Like theatre fast-paced, light and fluffy, then stay home and watch sitcoms. If the subjugation of women is not your theme ...ditto.

Great acting, Confusing

See it if you have a full/complete knowledge of the history of the Trojan War and all the gods.

Don't see it if you only have basic/general knowledge of the Trojan War because you'll be lost. Failed attempted to bring the play into modern times.

79
Absorbing, Interesting staging, Good acting, Great writing, Relevant

See it if you are looking for an interesting production of Euripides' great anti-war play

Don't see it if you don't like modern dress productions of classics

73
Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Intense, Intelligent, Profound

See it if You appreciate modern translations of Euripides plays.

Don't see it if You prefer big-budget productions.
