Internationally Award Winning UK the makers, The Flanagan Collective & Gobbledigook Theatre, bring a modern retelling of an ancient myth for a North American Premiere. Wound from soaring, heart pounding live music and searing spoken word, ORPHEUS & EURYDICE is a show for anyone who has fallen in love, and for anyone who has lost it. ORPHEUS & EURYDICE at SoHo Playhouse is a world premiere of two internationally award winning shows. These UK 'Master Storytellers' have toured ORPHEUS across the globe, and EURYDICE was awarded Best Theatre at Adelaide Fringe Festival. Now, for the first time, the two halves of an ancient whole combine. If you like the spoken word soul of Kate Tempest; if you like the heart rending adaptation of Anais Mitchell's HadesTown; if you like the narrative musicality of Amanda Palmer - then this show is for you.
