by Shari Barrett - Jul 29, 2015

Greek Mythology has always been fascinating to me. Just the idea of these ancient stories of Gods and humans interacting, causing problems, and in turn teaching life lessons has always intrigued me. So when I heard a solo show called SISYPHUS was coming to town for just three performances at Theatre 40, I knew I had to see it. And what an excellent piece of performance art it is! (more...)

Even each member of the ensemble had fantastic individuality and characterization that it makes one wonder whether an ensemble needs to necessarily “blend together” – which, in fact, is quite difficult not to do when the show decks out its actors in outrageous costumes that make Betsy Johnson and Alexander McQueen look (I won't be forgetting you, anytime soon, Sausage Dress…). Though, it's the joint effort between the lead players and supporting players that create magic on that stage, and this cast did just that. (more...)
