We want to take a moment to address the realities of producing new work in such challenging times. It's hard to believe that Broadway shut its bright lights over a year ago already. The pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on various industries and communities, especially artists.

But there is hope.

When we can't meet on stage, we figure out other ways to create — and our team of dedicated actors, directors, producers, sound designers, and writers persevered to create a new podcast through Zoom calls and iPhone recordings.

Even when facing significant obstacles, we remember that meaningful work can — and always will be — created. And we are grateful to all those who help make it a reality, gathering virtually to create even through a pandemic and isolation.

Why are people still fascinated and interested in mythology?

Here's what Advisor and Professor of Classics and Mediterranean Studies at University of Illinois Chicago, Young Richard Kim PhD, has to say.

And why does the tale of Perseus resonate so much with us today? "Because he's the classic underdog," says Dr. Kim.

"There is a youthful optimism exhibited in his story, and a kind of courage and determination that resonates with who we aspire to be."

Meet Divine Garland — the actor whose riveting and authentic performance inspires us to believe in Perseus and cheer for him through every step of his journey.

Though we'll have to use our imagination to experience this aspect of his talent, Divine's training is rooted in dance, which he studied along with musical theater at The Urban Assembly School for the Performing Arts.

He then went on to receive his B.F.A. in dance performance in May of 2019 from Montclair State University (MSU).

He has performed works by Frederick Earl Mosley, Bill T. Jones, Shapiro and Smith, Maxine Steinman and Christian von Howard.

You've probably noticed the captivating illustrations that accompany each new episode of Live from Mount Olympus. Meet the man behind them: Jason Adam Katzenstein.

Jason is an artist and cartoonist for renowned publications like The New Yorker. Now he's lending a hand (literally) to illustrate our Greek gods and the monsters they face.

What's his favorite aspect of illustrating for our story?

"I've really enjoyed drawing Perseus at different stages of his journey. It's a cool visual challenge to figure out what's consistent in his look and mannerisms and what changes as he matures."

Keep an eye out for each new illustration to see Perseus as he evolves into the hero he is meant to be.

6 episodes of Greek myth, starting with Perseus' birth, narrated by Andre de Shields, in this free podcast available February 2, 2021
Hi! I read tankers are running on different fuel blends because of the pandemic. Does the different flash points harm emissions or the engines? Say hello to Joe Kennedy the III and then let him know everything is not ok. Covid-19 alone needed and could have been nipped in the bud back in January. Now, the DCeven-BushsGoHard-FriendsOfBill posse & their proxies have former prosecutor Kamala Harris from California w/the legacy of Kate Steinle ripe and that so-called DOJ and a sitting Senator from the Chamber that left President Trump in office, in what John Bolton called impeachment malpractice, now running as VP with former VP Biden, who is the first VP of a CambridgeAnalytica President. Smells funny! Corrupt crooks! Chad H. Meabon, POW! Aloha.
FOR THE EMOTIONS EXHIBITION...We are soul and we have a body that is a vessel. We are energy that is why we have emotions that are good and bad. You pick and choose your life's path. Computers can never reach the soul. We do actions and accordingly we have emotions. God/s give you the freedom to choose your life's path. In Greek we say "Συν Αθηνα και χειρα κινει" meaning you pray to Godess Athena but you also have to do actions. Actions count in life and to the God/s. Thoughts become words and words become actions. Aristotle says actions become habit. Heraclitus says habits become your character which is your destiny... choose your path...
