THE HORROR OF A GREEK TRAGEDY SET IN THE INTIMACY OF A MANHATTAN PENTHOUSE
THE LAB is pleased to announce the upcoming production of Robert Auletta's AGAMEMNON:REDUX, a modern adaptation of Aeschalus' Agamemnon. Staged in the penthouse of the Roger Smith Hotel, this play will be performed to an exclusive audience of 40 people a night for a limited run of 16 performances only.
Experiential theater in its most raw form, this famous Greek tragedy will unfold around audience members in the hotel's intimate penthouse. One of the most unusual and private spots in the city, this space is most notable for its domed ceiling that inspired the famed architect Buckminster Fuller to design his Geodesic Dome. The distinctive room provides for a dramatic staging of the play as actors unexpectedly emerge from side rooms, back rooms and even exterior balconies, sharing the close space with the audience, bringing a fresh immediacy to this re-telling of an ancient classic.
