Very pleasant and enjoyable story and music. Olney Theater always does a great job and hires great performers. In particular, the actor that played one of the gods (the non-devil one) had a fantastic voice.

I really liked the show. The music is beautiful, the set, staging, and choreography was all very well done. The lead, Timoon, was fabulous! The only weakness was that maybe 2 of the singers had some pitch problems and/or too much vibrato,...continued

About the Ticket Supplier: Olney Theatre Center

Located just north of Washington, D.C. in arts-rich Montgomery County, Maryland, Olney Theatre Center for the Arts offers a diverse array of professional productions year-round that enrich, nurture and challenge a broad range of artists, audiences and students. One of two state theaters of Maryland, OTC is situated on 14 acres in the heart of the beautiful Washington-Baltimore-Frederick “triangle,” within easy access of all three cities.

An award-winning regional theater, Olney Theatre Center operates under an Actors’ Equity Association Council of Stock Theaters (COST) contract, one of only three theaters in the country to operate under such a contract.

In addition to its mainstage season, which emphasizes 20th-century American classics, new works, area premieres, reinterpretations of classics and musical theater, OTC offers a wide range of programs and affiliations including: National Players, America’s longest running classical touring company (since 1949), which performs for high school and college audiences in over 25 states; Potomac Theatre Project, which offers experimental and alternative plays that explore provocative and challenging human situations, ideas and visions; special school performances of mainstage shows; a free Summer Shakespeare Festival; and post-show discussions.
