Sometimes I go to the theater by myself. "For every nation that lives peaceably, another will grow harsh and push its aarogance, put off God and turn to madness. Fear not. God attends to these things slowly; but he attends." #thingsthatmakemehappy #publictheater #maboumines #blindboysofalabama #sophoclesadapted #oedipusatcolonus #gospelatcolonus #mynyc

The Gospel at Colonus

Felt so privileged to see Lee Breuer's legendary production live last night, and to introduce a kid to Greek tragedy with this musical adaptation of Sophocles' "Oedipus at Colonus". Were there moments when I was really confused because of the casting of multiple Oedipuses (Oedipi? Oedipodes?) and hard to make out lyrics? Definitely. But the casting of the Blind Boys of Alabama made Oedipus all the more vulnerable and his plight to find a place to die and be buried all the more urgent. I will never attend a Pentecostal church service, so it was exciting to get a taste of it. American popular music would not exist as we know it without the massive influence and contributions of the black church and its adherents.
Much of the theater I create with my theater company examines plays through the lens of Jewish ritual, so it was thrilling to see how a master director like Lee Breuer looked at the Greeks through the lens of a church service. It also reminded me of the theory that the story of Jesus is simply a retelling of the Dionysus myth.

Thanks @todaytix for the free tix. Don't miss it.
