The Odessy is a classic poem recited by Homer this is a terrific and involving retelling in a brilliant "Homeric" way. Loved every minute

Fantastic. Loved the experience. I was a little unsure about a one-man, 2-hour monologue but it was executed with incredible skill and never lagged.

Quotes & Highlights

“It is a bravura performance. Using a simple set and a few cutesy sound cues, Bethel manages both to evoke the bone-crunching, blood-spurting horror of the tale and to add winking commentary about it. This is storytelling on steroids, augmented with stellar physical acting that comes and goes in a blink. … ‘The Odyssey’ isn’t just myth. It’s augmented reality.” —azcentral.com
