Notes

Lookingglass Theatre's David Kersnar brings his unique brand of physical theatre to the Next stage. An exuberant and modern retelling of IPHIGENIA AT AULIS by Euripides, IPHIGENIA 2.0 is filled with pop culture and musical references about the tragic ways in which history repeats itself. A great imperial power decides to go to war, taking an action so wrong that it sets the empire on the road to complete self-destruction. Agamemnon, the leader of the Greek army, must prove to his uncertain troops that the dangerous battle they are about to undertake is righteous and worthy by making the ultimate sacrifice.
