AN ILIAD By Lisa Peterson And Denis O'Hare Comes to UndermainAN ILIAD By Lisa Peterson And Denis O'Hare Comes to Undermain
by BWW News Desk - Dec 12, 2018

In the spirit of celebrating 35 years of cutting-edge performances, Undermain establishes its Repertoire Series to honor the gems of its production history, with a reboot of An Iliad, a landmark production from 2012 starring Bruce DuBose and Paul Semrad, directed by Undermain Artistic Director Katherine Owens. An Iliad is a modern-day retelling of Homer's classic. Poetry and humor, the ancient tale of the Trojan War and the modern world collide in this captivating theatrical experience. The setting is simple: the empty theater. The time is now: the present moment. The lone figure onstage is a storyteller-possibly Homer, possibly one of the many bards who followed in his footsteps. He is fated to tell this story throughout history.  Tickets on sale now! www.undermain.org (more...)
