As always with the this theater company the show had excellent actors, sets and lighting. I have to say I was a bit confused in the first act about some of what was happening on stage. Things came together in the second act and I think it may...continued

This was a very worthwhile $42.75 investment. Seating (in the upper level) was comfortable with plenty of empty seats around me (I hate to feel confined). In preparation, I watched some YouTube videos to remind me of the story of Agamemnon, the...continued

The Oresteia is brilliantly and “freely adapted from the trilogy” by Aeschylus. It happens to be the last play to be directed by Michael Kahn before he retires. A 2500 year old play about responsibility, revenge, and justice that resonates...continued

It was an excellent production with stellar performances. The only reason that I gave it four vs. five stars is that it’s a Greek tragedy with murder and mayhem, not at all up lifting. I wanted to see Michael Kahn’s final production and pay homage...continued

Moving modern rendering of this too rarely seen epic theatrical classic.

I eagerly anticipated this production, having played a chorus leader in the three play version performed in the USA under Alexis Solomos, legendary director of the Greek...continued

The play was spectacular! I've been a fan of Director Kahn from the first play i watched he directed, Othello, starring Avery Brooks.

The staging and chorus were terrific but the rest had all the life of a graveyard. Metaphorically, the exhaustion from a vicious and bloody war takes it toll but these characters bordered on a parody of dead men walking.
