THE MINOTAUR: Press and Photos

90 minutes with ripe moments of raw emotion, well-timed zingers, topical modern references, and a world of deep insightful relatable elements; all of which make this one of the most unique retellings in modern theatre. With comedic aspects not dissimilar to more recent adaptations of Metamorphoses and the drama of a daytime soap opera, this riveting new work is simply impressive beyond compare.

The folks at Rorschach Theatre are practiced fantasists, so they have no problem conjuring a minotaur for the new play “The Minotaur.” Costume designer Lauren Cucarola provides actor David Zimmerman with a dapper suit in a brown rawhide tone, a shirt the color of blood and an elegant little horned headpiece, and voila: He’s a mythical bull chafing at the bad hand he’s been dealt by the gods.

Smartly Designed… the show comes at you with an intelligent mix of classicism and whimsy.
