I read about Eurydice and had some general idea what the story line was like. I took my husband to see this show for our one month wedding anniversary. He is very reserved when it comes to theatre or any Broadway shows. So I knew this would be a...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“A weird and wonderful new play – an inexpressibly moving theatrical fable about love, loss and the pleasures and pains of memory. Not to be missed by anyone with an interest in fresh theatrical voices.” –New York Times
“Exhilarating! A luminous retelling of the Orpheus myth, lush and limpid as a dream where both author and audience swim in the magical, sometimes menacing, and always thrilling flow of the unconscious.” –The New Yorker
“Exquisitely staged by Les Waters and an inventive design team. Ruhl’s wild flights of imagination, some deeply affecting passages and beautiful imagery provide transporting pleasures. They conspire to create original, at times breathtaking, stage pictures.” –Variety


When Eurydice abruptly dies on her wedding day, she must journey through the underworld, reunite with her father and struggle to retain memories of her lost love. With contemporary characters, ingenious twists of plot and breathtaking visual effects, this play is truly a fresh look at a timeless love story.

By Sarah Ruhl

Directed by Les Waters

With Maria Dizza, Gian-Murray Gianino, Carla Harting, Ramiz Monsef, Joseph Parks, Charles Shaw Robinson

About the Ticket Supplier: Second Stage Theatre

Director Carole Rothman and actress Robyn Goodman founded Second Stage Theatre in 1979 to give ‘second stagings’ to contemporary American plays that originally failed to find an audience due to scheduling problems, inappropriate venues or limited performance runs. Since then, Second Stage has evolved from a small theatre into an Off-Broadway institution dedicated to developing plays, artists and audiences.

Second Stage Theatre gives new life to contemporary American plays through ‘second stagings;’ provides emerging authors with their Off-Broadway debuts; and produces world premieres by America’s most respected playwrights. Through both the production of new plays and long-term residencies that focus on artistic process rather than product, artists find a supportive environment in which to try new roles, production designs and writing techniques. Audiences are an essential factor in program development at Second Stage Theatre, which is nationally known for its dedication to building future audiences by educating teens about the art of contemporary theatre and encouraging their participation in the cultural life of New York City.

For nearly three decades, Second Stage Theatre productions have launched the successful careers of numerous directors, actors, playwrights and artists, many of whom regularly return to work at Second Stage. The company’s mission also has expanded to the commissioning of a body of multigenerational plays; the creation of a training base for young directors and a home base for mid-career directors; and the development of educational projects that are integrated with the ongoing artistic work at the theatre.
