Last Chance to catch the Pearl Theatre Company's production of Euripides' Iphigeneia at Aulis, which opened Nov. 19 at Theatre 80 Off Broadway. The show ends its run Dec. 16, and tickets are still available for all remaining performances.
The play, which wasn't first produced until after Euripides' death in 406 BC, examines the complicated and fatal choices of the heroes of the Trojan War. Agamemnon must decide whether the need for war outweighs the life of his daughter, Iphigeneia, and she must also decide between her life and her country.
The company in this production includes resident actors Dan Daily, Carol Schultz, Sue Jin Song, Robert Hock, Albert Jones, Melissa Maxwell, Celeste Ciulla, Michael Nichols and Scott Whitehearst.
For tickets and information on Iphigeneia at Aulis, Nov. 19-Dec. 16 at the Pearl's home on 80 St. Mark's Place, please call (212) 598-9802.
