Mighty Myths and Legends Audience Comments and Reviews 

"This production is legendary."

- Eleanor Ringel

"Georgia Shakespeare is such a wonderful part of the Atlanta community."

- Laura Lockie

My four year old great-nephew, Johnny, was my date to see Mighty Myths & Legends this week. This play is  recommended for children 5 & up.  And as we sat down, I began to fear that it might be a little over his head. The only scenery is a pool in the center of the stage with a mountain looming over it. There are only four actors and a narrator. They all wear a basic costume that never changes, but is enhanced with the addition of props for different characters in each story.  I feared that visually, it wouldn't hold his attention. But boy, was I wrong...he loved it!! He was mesmerized throughout the whole one hour performance.

In remounting its 2006 production of Metamorphoses, Georgia Shakespeare brings back more than four of the original actors and director Richard Garner. The company refills the 3,000-gallon pool of water that dominates the performing space and turns out to be Metamorphoses' star attraction. The aquatic take on the timeless myths of Ovid represents such a graceful fusion of design and material that water seems like an underrated medium for a live performance. It makes you wonder why more stage plays don't employ water (not counting the Ice Capades, which use the frozen kind).
