Outré Theatre Company is proud to announce its sophomore production, Denis O’Hare and Lisa Peterson’s Obie Award-winning one-man show An Iliad, starring Avi Hoffman. Returning Homer’s classic to where it originated – the words of the Poet, speaking directly to an audience – An Iliad brings alive the struggle between Achilles and Hector, the battle and fall of Troy, and the beautiful woman who caused it all.
Outré’s production of An Iliad stars Avi Hoffman, the well-known and well-respected South Florida actor/director whose accolades and nominations include the LA Ovation Awards, the NY Drama Desk, the NY Outer Critics Circle, and South Florida’s own Carbonell Awards. Hoffman plays the Poet, bringing to life Homer’s timeless characters such as Achilles, Hector, Helen, and Priam.
The production will be directed by Skye Whitcomb, Outré’s Artistic Director. Sabrina Lynn Gore will assistant direct, with set design by Sean McClelland and lighting design by Stefanie Howard.
An Iliad will be performed at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center, 201 Plaza Real in Boca Raton, Florida. The production opens April 5, 2013, and runs through April 21, 2013. Performances are Fridays at 8:00 pm, Saturdays at 2:00 pm and 8:00 pm, and Sundays at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm. There will be no 7:00 pm performance on Sunday, April 14.
