This brilliant adaptation follows the plot of Euripides' play but adds asides to the audience and a dazzling physicality that not only refreshes the text with humor and energy but also brings out the depth of the human issues Euripides is examining. Jeremy Shranko as King Admetus, Kalean Ung as his wife Alcestis, and Nick Santoro as Herakles (a brawny, bare-chested Scot who is hero and rock-god!) stand out in a uniformly excellent ensemble. Played in 90 minutes without intermission, this is a production that lets the audience experience the endless contemporaneity of Greek tragedies by renewing them, not replacing them. Don't miss it!
