WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
You've probably heard of The Odyssey, a classic piece of literature written almost three thousand years ago by a blind poet named Homer. Well, the Long Beach Playhouse is turning Homer on his head, retelling the story with the help of puppets, masks and shadow puppets. They're also focusing on one of the coolest parts of The Odyssey -- the one with the Cyclops! Although The Cyclops is set back in the 8th-century B.C., the dialogue is lightened up with references from contemporary times including lines from musicals, songs, poems and pop culture references. The production is both serious and not, in the best sense of contrast. Please note that although this show has puppets, it's not intended for children.
