The classic mermaid myth that inspired everything from Splash to Disney's The Little Mermaid gets a hauntingly romantic update in Cutting Ball Theater's Ondine, presented at EXIT Theatre on Taylor Street. The familiar tale revolves around Ondine, a beautiful water sprite who finds love on land with a charming knight. But when she suspects that her beloved has abandoned her, Ondine -- in a fit of thoughtless passion -- issues a curse: his next sleep will bring him death. When the lovers are reunited, Ondine is forced to face her grave mistake. How long can the two stave off the siren's song of slumber? And is their shared dream destined to turn into a nightmare?
