A Grecian Goddesses and Mythical Monsters after party followed with appearances by DJ Rogue and the Love Show Dancers.

The through-sung piece is a new look at ancient mythology's most reviled monster told through a new lense, and features a modern soundscape that incorporates pop, soul, dance, electronica and gospel influences. The concert starred Christina Sajous (Spider Man: Turn Off The Dark; Spongebob; Holler If Ya Hear Me; American Idiot) as Medusa, Badia Farha (School of Rock; Broadway Bounty Hunter) as Athena and PJ Griffith (Rock of Ages; We Will Rock You) as Poseidon, with Christian Brailsford (Broadway Dreams; Cleopatra, the Musical Experience), Christopher Isolano (Rope at Lincoln Center), Alexandra Mazzucchelli (Hallmark's "Christmas Camp") and Debbie Christine Tjong (Red Roses, Green Gold; Rags Parkland).
