Audiences rave about "Oedipus el Rey"
Opening weekend audiences who saw Oedipus el Rey were quick to show their enthusiasm, posting all sorts of kudos across the Internet. Here are a few ...
"Miracle Theatre's production of Oedipus el Rey is an intensely passionate dance with fate, with the entire ensemble directed by Elizabeth Huffman maintaining a driving rhythm of speech and movement leading to the inevitable conclusion. It is poetry, dance, beauty and violence all set in the mean streets or cell blocks of L.A. while retelling the ancient Greek story with a force that speaks to us today. Magnificent! Olga Sanchez Saltveit is really hot as Jocasta. Don't miss this!" - Ronni Lacroute
