This is a fantastic fringe offering, and you should fight someone to get a ticket. Because it will certainly continue to sell out.... full review

This show was a riot. An original musical rooted in environmental issues, inspired by an outside the box take on the pressing tale from Greek mythology. Potentially a nod to the music and style of "HAIR," each of the performers channel explosive energy in each of their roles, delivering a powerful message through a very unique approach. This show is the perfect balance of music and comedy that could definitely be developed into a higher production quality show in the near future. But, see it while you can at Fringe, because they really made a lot out of a little. Great use of space and theatre resources. Never a dull moment and you will quickly latch on to a favorite character.... full review

Listen up, Hollywood, Writer/Director Elizabeth Lanier has something to say, and you need to hear it. In her 50-minute short, Narcissus & Echo, Lanier takes on global water shortages utilizing Greek Mythology and modern-day PR; but if you think you’re in for an evening of soap-box lectures, don’t worry, the preaching ends at the door.

The story itself is simple enough: Zeus (Rishi Arya) and Hera (Alexa Giuffre), at ends as always, vie for the Water Nymphs talent to mar... full review

it was a lot of people on stage yet they still managed to choreograph quite an impressive series of movements. ... full review

Loved this show! Brilliantly written and directed with a compelling blend of humor and poignancy, this show creatively retells an ancient myth through a relevant, modern lens. Despite the many characters and minor subplots, I was never confused as to what was going on or who was doing what. And to be honest, I didn't realize it was a musical before I attended but the music was never kitschy or boring, and the acting and singing was superb. Highly recommended!... full review
