Antony Sandoval, a professor in Tulane's Department of Theatre and Dance, is taking his cue from the Roman Seneca rather than the Greek Euripedes in his modern stylization of this classic tragedy about the the horrifying results of an impossible marriage. However, Sandoval's adaptation is far removed from the traditional presentation of either. His background reflects outside-of-the-box acting and directing, which he has done both nationally and internationally, but most notably in Japan with the renowned Tadashi Suzuki's Theatre Company. The cast and crew of this production of Medea describe it as "fast, intense, dynamic," "visually electrifying," "pulsing" and "morally ambiguous." With a bold setting designed by South African MFA student Jenni-Lee Crew, creative costumes by John Harry Bonck, and shadow puppets by Anndi Daleske, Tulane's first production of 2006 is shaping up to be one exciting experiment. Sandoval directs Kathleen Small as Medea, Courtney Pauroso as the nurse, Andrew Farrier as Jason and Clayton Faits as Creon. Shana Doyle leads the chorus of Helen Jaksch, Tania Michaels, Meredith Mullins and Aiesha Volow. Tickets $12 general admission, $9 Tulane faculty/staff, $7.50 seniors and all students. -- Katie Walenter
