The Mysteries – New Musical Showcase

THE MYSTERIES

“The Demeter and Persephone myth had such a profound impact on ancient society that the effects are still being felt. That’s why the show is more than a retelling of an ancient story. To me, it’s a warning from the past that if we don’t bring the masculine and feminine perspectives into harmony, the environmental catastrophe into which the world is falling will not be healed.”  Ann Mortifee

THE MYSTERIES
An Ancient Myth for Modern Times

Created by Ann Mortifee, in collaboration with Edward Henderson and David Feinstein

The Mysteries re-visions the ancient Greek myth of the goddess Demeter, and her beautiful daughter, Persephone, who was abducted to the underworld. The original myth held a sacred role in Greek society for over 2,000 years. Its themes of aggression, devastation of the earth, and duplicity had a profound impact on western culture that remarkably, is still being felt today.

“Ann Mortifee’s The Mysteries is worthy of the gods. Its brilliant cadences of words and song, its cornucopia of fruit streaming from the mind and soul of Ann Mortifee’s genius, and its sheer gifts of originality and surprise grant us wildly creative breakthroughs into what musical theater can be.  It is a revelation, an epiphany, and a grand good time.” – Jean Houston, Ph.D
