It's an opera in the most rock-infused sense of the word. Cindy Shapiro's modern retelling of the ancient Greek myth about the original princess is a stylistic musical hybrid of post-modernism and rock. This theatrical fever-dream imagines the human princess Psyche and the god Eros falling wildly in love -- but Eros' mother, Aphrodite, has other plans. Psyche finds herself thrust into a netherworld where she faces challenge after daunting challenge in the name of true love. Can she survive? Will she go the distance to overcome the wrath of Aphrodite to take her place in the universe as a true hero who will change the world and the very nature of love forever? Learn More

Goodman delivers “a wonderful understanding of this larger than life actor…riveting…hopefully this show will bring a spotlight to this marvelous performer.” —Stage Happenings
“…mind-bendingly powerful production…(Goodman is) in turns, he is charming, elegant, bawdy, animated, self-deprecating, hilarious, bitter, “off color” … and captivating throughout. —__”Tolucan Times":http://tolucantimes.info/section/theatre_review/its-funny-but-now-that-the-days-are-shorter-and-darkness-comes-sooner/__
