Concluding Monday, Sept. 7
The Odyssey (Off-Broadway at the Delacorte Theater) The Odyssey is a musical with music, lyrics and a book by Todd Almond. It was conceived by Lear deBessonet and is based on Homer's play. The show is described as such: "Inspired by the historical pageantry movement of the early 1900s - known for blending mass spectacle with community engagement - the musical reimagines the Greek epic with Public Works' signature blend of professional actors, community members and special guests. Man-eating Cyclops, a sorceress that turns sailors to beasts, and the deadly sweet song of the Sirens explode onto the stage with dance in this musical about finding your way home - no matter where fate may lead you."
