Long before it was a book, even before it was a poem, The Iliad was one heck of a story, a rollicking, raunchy and altogether enthralling tale that people couldn't get out of their heads. Now co-creators Lisa Peterson (Obie-winning director) and Denis O'Hare (Tony-winning actor) have recaptured the spirit of the early epic in An Iliad, a 90 minute one-man show. In this celebration of storytelling, Jackson Davis plays the Poet, who speaks directly to the audience, bringing to life the struggle between Achilles and Hector over the beautiful Helen, and the resulting battle and fall of Troy. Personal, funny, deeply relevant, this play has been dubbed a "masterpiece" by the Chicago Tribune. Learn More

The cast was great, showing a lot of talent as they switched from one character to another. The music at times was distracting. The story line was clever, entertaining, thought provoking and educational. The profanity was over done and did not add to the show.
