Wonderfully executed "updated" performance with superb vocal performances and staging. There are really no bad seats in this Theater - I went with a group and we had a great time.

Thoroughly fun and frothy. Wonderful ensembles. The intimate Atlas theatre allowed us to see lots of gestures and expressions that would have been lost in a larger venue.

Description

Offenbach’s satirical opera (1858) was a scandalous hit at its Parisian premiere.  Orpheus and Eurydice, married for years, both seek romance elsewhere. Pluto kidnaps Eurydice, and meddlesome Public Opinion persuades Orpheus to rescue her. Meanwhile the other gods want a piece of the action! Bacchus sorts things out with a final bacchanale and the famous Can-can. The hilarious English book and lyrics by Kelley Rourke poke plenty of fun at our 21st century ways. Directed by Rick Davis and Joel Lazar.
