philoktetes at soho rep
Culturebot’s tip for this weekend is John Jesurun’s Philoktetes at Soho Rep.
From their website:
Ten years after abandoning Philoktetes on an island, his fellow soldiers return, now forced to ask for his help.
Jesurun’s signature hybrid of vernacular and lyrical language, cinematic and stage acting, and lush projections create a sharp-witted adaptation of this classic myth of beauty and brutality. One of the leading forces in contemporary theatre, Jesurun’s internationally acclaimed play receives its eagerly awaited American premiere.
Oh and Soho Rep just started 99Cent Sundays – so you can see any show there for 99Cents on Sunday. how about that?
