Notes

Timothy Edward Kane returns to reprise his jaw-dropping, award-winning performance in this highly anticipated revival of Artistic Director Charles Newell’s critically acclaimed 2011 production. A one-man adaptation of Homer’s Iliad created by Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare (TV’s True Blood), An Iliad returns Homer’s epic poem to the voice of the lone poet as he recounts a story of human loss and folly that echoes across three millennia of war and bloodshed. An Iliad will once again illuminate this ancient classic by taking a harrowing look at the human cost of war.
