The New York Theatre Workshop is dedicated to challenging and delighting audiences with new and innovative theater. Award-winning actor Denis O’Hare wears the two-toned hat of co-writer and performer in a one-man retelling of Homer’s Iliad. Throughout the run, O’Hare switches out with fellow Tony winner Stephen Spinella to weave the allegorical tale of humanity’s incurable attraction to violence and primo Turkish seaside real estate. The New York Theatre Workshop’s intimate theater proffers the perfect space for audience-actor connection, with exposed-brick walls that imbue the space with a charming, unfinished air and dissuade wolves from trying to blow the house down.
