Medea's putting the pulse back in expulsion. This vaguely-absurdist, disturbingly-feminist new musical synthesized an electro-pop score, "slick choreography," feminist history, and the text of Medea into a "beautifully produced" theatrical event. After two-thousand years in exile, Medea smuggles back to the very theater in which you sit to retell the events that made her infamous, and invoke the spirit of women who've found justice all their own.
