Shanghai Grand Theatre , 300 People's Avenue Fri 22 Jun - Sat 23 Jun
Leave it to Tony-award winning actor Denis O’Hare and visionary director Lisa Peterson to find a way to make the western world’s oldest extant work of literature not only intelligible, but immediate, relevant and eerily fascinating-like a barroom raconteur telling literally the oldest story in the book and making you believe it is being told for the first time. Gods and goddesses, weak-tendons heroes and the face that launched a thousand ships…it’s all just another (incredibly engrossing) yarn in O’Hare and Peterson’s one-man adaptation, developed at the Sundance Theatre Institute.
