The PiTCH: Week 5: Medusa
August 14 @ 7:30 pm$20
Based on the original Greek myth, Medusa is the story of a woman who goes to Athens to try and make her own fate. She wins an election to become a priestess, but when the god Poseidon assaults her one night, she finds how little power she has in this supposedly free and enlightened city. As Medusa fights back against both gods and mortals, rumors fly about this angry woman with “snakes in her hair,” and the legend is born. Told with modern language and a darkly energetic score of hip-hop and rock, “Medusa” is an ancient tragedy that is as timely and necessary as ever.
