A WORLD PREMIERE CO-PRODUCTION WITH HUDSON
VALLEY SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL AND BEDLAM
by LUIS QUINTERO
Adapted from Euripides
Co-Conceived and Directed by NATHAN WINKELSTEIN
“There’s more to her than anyone could ever infer –
You can kick my words to the curb. I think it’s time that we heard from her.”
An ice-cold, high-octane adaptation of Euripides' play written in battle rap verse, this brand-new hip-hop version of Medea sheds contemporary light on the classic tragedy of family, power, and revenge - as terrifying and shocking today as it was two thousand years ago. Quintero’s version of the story reignites the sacred rage of our ancestors and illuminates in the most human terms the extraordinary lengths that some people will travel to even the scales of justice.
Originally commissioned and developed by Red Bull Theater, the rolling world premiere of Luis Quintero’s Medea: Re-Versed begins outdoors at Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival in Garrison NY, playing from June 12 to August 30, 2024, and moves indoors Off-Broadway at Red Bull Theater and Bedlam in NYC, playing from September 12 to October 15, 2024.
