Cast was good, and stage set intriguing--it added a lot to the play; an interesting adaptation of the myth for modern audiences. Still, I was underwhelmed. This is the second of Sara Ruhl's plays I've seen, mostly because she is so highly praised, but I just wasn't moved as I hope to be when I go to the theater.
New York’s smash hit Eurydice comes to Round House. In an emotionally powerful yet funny play, Sarah Ruhl (The Clean House, Dead Man’s Cell Phone) retells the myth of Orpheus from the perspective of his beloved Eurydice. On the day she is to be married, a misstep sends Eurydice plummeting to the surreal depths of the Underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to retain memories of her lost love. With contemporary characters and ingenious plot twists, Ruhl offers a fresh spin on a timeless love story. Derek Goldman directs an Off-Broadway triumph hailed by The New York Times as “devastatingly lovely…with warmth, humor and theatrical imagination…a love letter to the world that deserves to be remembered for a good long time.” This magical canvas of language and imagery may be Sarah Ruhl’s most personal and deeply felt piece of theatre.
