Helen of Troy as a bored housewife? Ulysses as a dashing hero of the Spanish-American War? The whimsical and toweringly ambitious 1954 musical The Golden Apple does all that and more, reshaping the myths of The Iliad and The Odyssey into an all-American fable that conjures up the days when pie-baking contests were cutthroat and lovers eloped in hot air balloons. Despite its brief run, John Latouche and Jerome Moross’ “opera for Broadway” was hailed by critics and introduced the classic torch song “Lazy Afternoon.” Encores! is delighted to present the ultimate cult musical to a new generation.

Show Times: Wednesday @7:30pm; Thursday @7:30pm; Friday @8pm; Saturday @2pm and 8pm; Sunday @2pm and 7pm
