"An Iliad" at the Lantern Theater: Liz Filios as The Muse and Peter DeLaurier as The Poet.

The Lantern Theater's production of An Iliad features only two people: a bard and his muse. The poem he speaks, and the ancient rhythms in which he speaks it, resonate deep into history and back to the present moment, with tales of war and its consequences.
