Written and Directed by Chip Rodgers

ELEKTRA: Eliza Bent

KRYSOTHEMIS: Lauren Blumenfeld
PYLADES: Evan Johnson
CHORUS: Arielle Lever

In Elektra, writer/director Chip Rodgers vaguely remembers and refracts the original myth to examine the tragedy of what it means to grow up inside your own head, justifying every decision with millions of stupid, mundane, and self-destructive reasons for things that don’t matter. Killing your mom is pretty dangerous, I think, maybe just as much as staying up late and finishing off that box of Oreos.

Join Evan and the Elektra cast at The Bushwick Starr on Monday, February 25th.  8pm.
