BWW Review: SITI Company's Updated, International BACCHAE at Guthrie Theater Photo BWW Review: SITI Company's Updated, International BACCHAE at Guthrie Theater
by Karen Bovard - Mar 12, 2020

Euripides' BACCHAE is one of the bloodiest of the Greek tragedies we have: a grisly tale of how violently the capricious Olympian gods can retaliate on mortals if they feel disrespected. Here, the god in question is Dionysus, god of wine, passion, fertility--and theater. As played by Ellen Lauren, he's sinewy and androgynous and lewd: part Mick Jagger, part mad imp.
