In support of our upcoming tour of England, Verse Theater Manhattan presents a benefit performance of WAR MUSIC, the first of Christopher Logues savage modern verse adaptations of Homers Trojan War epic, the ILIAD.  From March 7th through March 15th, VTM will perform WAR MUSIC at the universities of Cambridge, Oxford, East Anglia, Exeter, Notre Dame (London) and Bristol, as well as the Centre for Hellenic Studies, Kings College, London.

 

About this provocative staging of historys greatest epic, which features an all-female cast, Andrew Stuttaford, writing in the National Review, called WAR MUSIC moving, brutal, and chilling its fierce, terrible beauty makes it a text for our times a reminder of what our cultures traditions and memory can mean. 

 

Please help launch our first international tour by joining us for this one-night-only performance of VTMs acclaimed contemporary masterpiece, WAR MUSIC.  There will be a reception with the cast and director following the show.
