The relationship between a mother and her teenage daughter can be sheer hell - especially if that daughter is a Greek goddess with a taste for the Underworld.
MYTHIC, a new pop/rock musical comedy by Marcus Stevens (Book and Lyrics) and Oran Eldor (Music and Orchestrations), turns the ancient Greek story of Persephone on its side, with the gods as chart-topping rock stars, power-hungry politicians, and professional VIPs.
In a world of Olympian celebrity, Persephone struggles between her mother Demeter’s expectations and a desire to find her own path. But her wish for independence comes back to bite her when she gets trapped in the Hell with Greece’s perennial bad boy, Hades.
The journey that follows is an offbeat, emotionally-charged tale for ancient and modern times.
All in all, it makes you feel good and that’s the point of any good musical. Highly recommended
It's a show where every element fits together like pieces of a puzzle: from the casting and the visual impact to the material itself, Mythic is a success of divine proportion
Heavenly pop musical about the Greek gods full of catchy songs
It's a lively, humorous show, with a simple message about finding one's purpose, and letting your loved ones go, at its core
This new musical is unlikely to become a West End legend overnight. However, it shows plenty of promise
Don’t expect some ardent modern retelling of the myth. It’s a romp, almost Carry On at times. And better for it
