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

My boyfriend and I went to see the preview of this show last night.
The acting of all three of the cast is outstanding, the music is enrapturing and the play itself is very well written and produced. The cast, crew and director should all be applauded.
If you are looking for a thoroughly entertaining evening, I cannot recommend this show highly enough!
Quotes & Highlights
“smart, tough and tenderhearted comedy” —New York Times
Written by Claudia Shear
In Dirty Blonde, the audience gets to see how carefully and confidently Mae West developed the extravagant, sexy, taboo-breaking public persona that was the hallmark of her fame. At the same time, this comedy explores the lives of two misfits who are her biggest fans. At once a love story, a musical and an amusing take on celebrity obsession, Dirty Blonde is a joyous celebration of Hollywood’s bawdy, groundbreaking female icon.
