STAGE TUBE: Actors Bridge and Belmont University present Sarah Ruhl's EURYDICE

Sarah Ruhl's Eurydice, a magical tale based on the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, continues Actors Bridge Ensemble's 2010-11 season, running February 18-27 at Belmont University's Troutt Theater.

Directed by Jessika Malone, in Ruhl's critically acclaimed play, "Eurydice is to marry her true love, a misstep sends her to the surreal depths of the Underworld, where she has a surprising reunion and ultimately must decide whether to follow Orpheus back to the land of the living."

The New York Times described Eurydice as "a magical play with gripping emotional potency...a love letter to the world..."

The Nashville premiere of Ruhl's Eurydice is a collaboration of Actors Bridge and Belmont University's Department of Theatre and Dance. Ruhl is the author of Actors Bridge's 2009 hit Dead Man's Cell Phone.

Malone directs a cast that includes Bill Feehely, Kristin McCalley, Miles Gatrell, Chris Rayis, Tyler Henry, JP Cheek, Gina D'Arco, Adrienne Hall and Kallen Prosterman.

Tickets are $18 (general admission), $15 (seniors/students), $12 (Belmont faculty/staff/alumni) and free to current Belmont students. Tickets are available through the Belmont Box Office at (615) 460-8500. The performance schedule follows: Friday, February 18 at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, February 19 at 2 p.m. (no evening show will be presented on February 19); Sunday, February 20 at 2 p.m.; Thursday, February 24 at 7:30 p.m.; Friday, February 25 at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, February 26, at 2 p.m.; Saturday, February 26 at 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, February 27 at 2 p.m.
