The adaptation worked well, although the set was very small , the costumes were great and the acting was good. The actress who played the role of the young Emily Ann (Ava Morse )was quite good. Josh Odor who played Rita Shaw's husband (Dutch Seymour) delivered a great performance and so did Catherine Chupein as the aunt and David Vogel as the uncle. The lead role of adult Emily Ann/ Rita Shaw was played by Lee Stark ... while she looked very good and physically represents her role beautifully, her delivery runs quite shrill and consequently it was disturbing and disappointing. Thus, she should adapt her voice tone to small stages/ sets especially the tiny one in this particularly small theater. The first half of the drama dragged a bit, but the second half was definitely faster paced and the plot payoffs worked well. An overall enjoyable evening.
The Goddess features guest artist Lee Stark in the title role as well as ensemble members Maria Stephens, Katherine Swan and David Vogel. They are joined by guest artists Flavia Borges, Caitlin Emmons, Nick Jordan, Catherine Kusch, Mike Krystosek, Andrew Marikis, Daniel McEvilly, Andy Monson, Ava Morse, Josh Odor, Skye Shrum, Leah Uteg and Phil Wasik.

The Artistic Home was founded in 1998, under the leadership of Artistic Director Kathy Scambiatterra, with the belief that the actor is the heart of great theater. It is the actor who moves the audience, brings a story to life, and - with the audience - creates the revelatory, truthful moments that great theater provides.
