Amazing how much culture - both ancient and modern - was crammed into the one-hour "Medea" show! I was impressed with this thoroughly creative, passionate, thoughtful and funny production, presented in an intimate, and the skill of the energetic performers. I was introduced to Greek mask theatre, classic Greek stories and characters, and the current art scene in Athens (as well as some characteristic Greek sayings and behaviours). What a wonderful addition to an itinerary of the Acropolis, the museums, restaurants and neighbourhoods. This was the ultimate "living" synthesis of Greek history and art - all in an entertaining package. Old and new were blended in invigorating and educational ways, and the experience felt more local "night at the theatre" than tourist trap. The experience was very intimate (a tiny, black box theatre with maybe 50 seats) and the writer/director (a dashing Greek version of George Clooney) personally greeted the guests and gave a very enlightening overview of Greek mask theatre, mask creation, and the plays/characters. Then the four ensemble players proceeded to sing/act/dance/fight/prat fall and express their hearts out (in English) for an hour - then greeted guests afterward. I was fortunate to be there on closing night (after a 6-month run) and though the storm kept the audience small, the actors played their hearts out as if to a capacity crowd. And the host patiently exchanged many emails with me to guide me to the location. The show will resume in the spring and you simple MUST attend! Best value in Athens! I would not have known about this opportunity were it not for Air BnB Experience (although there is a poster up for the theatre in one of the streets, I would never have noticed it or figured out how to buy tickets. Air BnB Experience made this so easy!!)

What an amazing production! Light hearted, appropriate for all ages, but gave a taste of some of the best Greek classics - in English! It was one of my favorite experiences in Greece this year. And Yiannis was so knowledgeable - and amazingly kind and welcoming to his audience.

This experience was great, I can't recommend it enough. The actors were talented and translated ancient Greek theater into a comical and entertaining performance. A welcome break from all of the tours/walking one can do in Athens, this is a must-see!
