How do you solve a problem like Peer Gynt: an epic adventure, nearly 5 hours long (even with two parts, I’ve done some cutting), which covers nearly 60 years of the life of a main character who is, by definition, an anti-hero? He’s a pathological liar, wildly impulsive, and by the end of the play a bitter old man. This is a story with over 50 characters, including trolls, gorillas, and dancing girls that travels over two wildly different continents. In other words… the perfect show for New Muses. In many ways, this show is what we do best, taking a script or production concept that is unproducable for the larger theaters in the region and putting it on stage. This cast has been wonderful interpreting a wide range of characters, Edvard Grieg’s iconic music has helped us transport to another time, and Ibsen wrote a sweeping script that makes the long journey seem short. Thank you for joining us on the journey, I hope you enjoy the show(s).
