About this show

Lookingglass Ensemble member Mary Zimmerman brings us Argonautika. An older story and a stranger one than The Odyssey, Argonautika recounts the adventures of Jason and his crew aboard the Argo on a perilous mission to cross the forbidden ocean in their quest for the Golden Fleece. There is danger at every turn as they encounter sea monsters and water nymphs, wicked and savage kings, a city of women and an army of warriors sprung from the earth. But no danger proves as great as the overwhelming love of a young sorceress named Medea. Join Jason and his crew aboard the Argo for the world's first sea voyage. Additional Price Information: In addition to the new $20.00 Tuesdays, when tickets for all Tuesday evening performances cost only $20.00, Lookingglass Theatre also offers Target Saturday Matinees. Buy One, Get One Free tickets are now available for all 3:00 PM Saturday matinees at Lookingglass.
