Book & Lyrics by Marcus Stevens · Music by Oran Eldor
Mythic turns the ancient Greek story of Persephone on its side, with the gods as chart-topping rock stars, power-hungry politicians, and professional VIPs. In a world of Olympian celebrity, Persephone struggles between her mother Demeter’s expectations and a desire to find her own path. But her wish for independence comes back to bite her when she gets trapped in the Hell with Greece’s perennial bad boy, Hades. The journey that follows is an offbeat, emotionally- charged tale for ancient and modern times.
Mythic was presented as part of the 2017 NAMT Festival. It received it’s world premiere at Charing Cross Theatre in London in October 2018 and was named one of the best musicals in United Kingdom for the 2018 Season. The Segal Centre for the Performing Arts in Montreal will present the North American premiere fall 2019.
