THE BEAUTY OF PSYCHE

By JJ Gatesman

 

 

ABOUT THE SHOW
This Valentine season, join us for a magical love story inspired by the myth of Cupid and Psyche, the same story which inspired the beloved Beauty and the Beast! This original retelling of the myth follows a human woman whose beauty rivals that of Aphrodite on a journey to prove her spirit, find the true meaning of love and eventually become a god! We explore her adventure through the use of puppetry, masks, original music and a live theatrical sound scape provided by the multi talented actors and musicians who serve as our ensemble chorus.
