Looking for Ithaca: An Odyssey

Thursday, September 29, 10AM 
IN THE COOK THEATRE

Looking for Ithaca: An Odyssey is an imaginative retelling of a familiar tale: a family who has been fractured by war and unseen forces. All are in search of safety in a land that will bring them back together--but fate has other elements in store for them.  See the story through the eyes of a family fighting their way back to one another: Odysseus, a father whose yearning for his wife and child drives him to traverse the dangers hidden in the sea; Penelope, a mother protecting what’s left of her home and her family; and Telemachus, a son embarking on an Odyssey of his own, looking to fill the shoes of an unknown father. They may return home, but that isn’t where their journey ends.

Man of La Mancha

Considered by many to be one of the best musicals of all time, Man of La Mancha is brilliantly reimagined with a contemporary urgency by celebrated director Peter Rothstein, who immerses us in Miguel de Cervantes’s retelling of Don Quixote and his quest. This epic and poignant journey celebrates the perseverance of one man who refuses to relinquish his ideals and who is determined to see life not as it is, but as it ought to be.
