Get a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Hephaestus, a brand new musical from Madison native Nathan Fosbinder.
This program will feature scenes and songs from Music Theatre of Madison's production, Hephaestus,interspersed with analysis and background from professor William Brockliss, an expert in Greek mythology from UW-Madison's Department of Classical and Near Eastern Studies.
Fosbinder, brings to life the underdog of Greek myths: lame-legged, seemingly useless Hephaestus, who pines for the love of Aphrodite and endures the scorn of his family. Wit an humor combined with soaring contemporary melodies bring the often one dimensional Greek Gods to palpable life in this, a true MTM and Wisconsin original.
