Before she was one of the greatest mythical monsters of all time, Medusa was a kind, beautiful sea-nymph in Athena's service. Devoted and beautiful she rose in Athena’s service, then she caught the eye of Poseidon. His violence and Athena’s jealousy created a monster. Join us in this theatrical retelling of the little-known origins of the cursed Medusa.
