TANTALUS 20th anniversary

Twenty years ago, the Denver Center Theatre Company made history. In a co-production with the Royal Shakespeare Company, TANTALUS— the largest play ever to have been attempted… maybe to this day—received its world premiere. 2,500 years in the making. 17 years to write. Six months of rehearsal. Ten plays to recount the story of the Trojan War. A lifetime in theatrical history.
