Book, Music & Lyrics by John Mercurio
Myth is a contemporary riff on three Greek myths set in present-day New York City. Orin (Orpheus) is a bored rock star; Ella (King Midas) is a frustrated housewife; and Jay (Phaethon) is a cynical teenager. They take off to find the one thing they want most of all – love, career and family, respectively. By the end of the first act, not only have they each found then lost their heart’s desire, they end up worse off than when they started.
