Bonnie Cullum and her crew at the Vortex do it again! TROADES: The Legend of the Women of Troy is an amazing story about the women of Troy told from their point of view.
I spoke with Bonnie and several cast members and they all said the same thing, the rehearsals were intense and hard. Going to see the show, it's hard for one to not see how much work these people put into this show.
The make up and costumes were amazing! The set was amazing! The light design was amazing. All these elements with incredible acting and beautiful singing make it hard not to enjoy this show.
The cast as a whole was strong. Stand out performances for me were Gabriel Maldonado who played Menelaos; Eric Porter who played Talthybios; Kimberley Mead who played Andromache; and finally Patricia Wappner who played Hekabe, the Queen.
It runs until March 29th (Thurs-Sun at 8pm) and you get to choose what you want to pay (from $10 to 30). There's a possibility of the show extending to another weekend. Check the website or call the box office for more information and also to reserve your seat.
