Milwaukee Repertory Theater presents: An Iliad
Milwaukee Repertory Theater continues its 2013/14 60th Anniversary Season with a production of An Iliad, a modern adaptation of Homer’s classic. Described as “pure theater: shocking, glorious, primal, and deeply satisfying,” by Time Out New York, An Iliad features Wisconsin-based actor James DeVita and cellist Alicia Storin, a native of Mequon, Wisconsin. Written by Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare, An Iliad will be directed by John Langs, who returns to The Rep after directing I Am My Own Wife during the 2010/11 Season.
An ancient tale comes roaring back to life in a compelling new telling filled with contemporary wit and wisdom. The clash of swords and shields, the broken hearts and broken oaths, the bonds of friendship and family – An Iliad races through time to become breathtakingly relevant today. An Iliad runs in The Rep’s Quadracci Powerhouse from February 25 – March 23 and opens Friday, February 28. The Executive Producers for this production are James E. and Mary K. Braza and the Associate Producers are Warren and Wendy Blumenthal. James DeVita’s performance is sponsored by Donna and Tony Meyer.
