Julia Stiles and Bob McGrath discuss “Persephone”

Actress Julia Stiles and director Bob McGrath discuss “Persephone” at BAM, the music-theater collaboration with the Ridge Theater ensemble and three exceptional contributors from across various disciplines. The mythology surrounding the Greek character of Persephone—the beautiful and doomed daughter of Zeus and Demeter who was abducted by Hades into the Underworld—is explored though songs, narrative, projections, and instrumental music. “Persephone” is playing at BAM as part of the 2010 Next Wave Festival, October 26–30, at 7:30 pm.
