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

This was a creative and professional revival of a theatrical classic. You can depend on Kenneth Kelleher for imaginative staging. The memorable songs were performed convincingly with some very trained voices blending nicely with the live sextet. Goldstar made it easy to request special accomodations. Artistic Director, Randall King, assisted with convenient parking. A fun evening, with a little social commentary.
This show contains adult themes and situations and is not appropriate for children.
