Another Medea: Theater review by Raven Snook

Tom Hewitt makes a chillingly sympathetic sociopath in Aaron Mark’s solo thriller about Marcus Sharp, a bright NYC actor who exacts Medea-style revenge on the lover who done him wrong. Even those with just a cursory knowledge of Euripides’s tragedy will know the sinister direction it’s headed. However, Tony nominee Hewitt, best known for Broadway musicals, captivates as he shares his bloody tale seated at a prison table, a spotlight framing his chiseled features, his mellifluous voice embodying all the players, from his upper-crust British boyfriend to his old Jewish agent to his twin girls. Medea is inherently upsetting, but what makes this variation particularly disturbing is how damn relatable Marcus is—and disarmingly funny, too. He really puts the me in Medea. Maybe we all have a bit of that murderous mother inside of us.—Raven Snook
