Choosing to recreate a Greek tragedy poses a number of challenges to any theatre company, including how to avoid the stylized, museum-type disconnection that can make contemporary audiences feel like they’re viewing a strange and garrulous statue piece.

Boston Events like ‘Trojan Woman,’ a Whistler in the Dark theatre production by Ben Evett, masterfully addresses this situation by inviting the audience, or a large part of it, to join in the scenes onstage, and to see themselves right in the middle of the action.

Distance is collapsed and a sense of humanity is shared with Boston Events like Evett’s vision of 'Trojan Woman.' Evett envelopes theatregoers in the drama of the women of Troy who are awaiting their dreaded fates at the hands of the conquering Greeks. By allowing the audience to get up-close-and-personal with the characters, the suffering on their faces takes on a reality that gives the production a magnetic attraction.

Even from a short distance away, as seen from the seats of the small Paramount Theatre, ‘Trojan Woman’ exudes that rare classic feel that is not often seen in modern interpretations of the story. When you Visit Boston, you can choose from many Luxury Boston Hotels.
