We all know the Iliad
from school, a book about the size of a cinderblock translated from a dead language. But it didn't start out that way -- before it was a book, before it was even a poem, it was a story, and an addictive one at that. In an attempt to restore its original character, collaborators Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare transformed the epic into An Iliad
, a 90 minute one-man show. Magically, an ancient text became a personal, funny, deeply relevant piece of theater. The critical reaction was immediate and overwhelmingly positive. The New York Times, The Chicago Sun, The Philadelphia Inquirer
, among many others, all published glowing reviews. But perhaps the most characteristic praise came from Time Out NY
: "An Iliad
is pure theater: shocking, glorious, primal, and deeply satisfying."
