GET YOUR MYTH ON!
“If you only see one show this month, see this one. TWICE.” — New York Theatre Review
“Exuberant… taps into the desire so many of us feel for lives more intrepid, more exciting, and certainly better funded than the ones we’re stuck with. “
— The Village Voice
“The performances are top notch and Shana Gold’s direction is impeccable. An ambitious show, with a lot of humor and a lot of heart, Goldor $ Mythyka is unlike anything else playing right now. Anyone with an interest in multimedia storytelling and unconventional theater should give it a look. Many thanks to New Georges for continuing to support such risk taking with the Germ Project!” — nytheatre.com
“An unequivocal triumph for the design team… projections, allusive sound and musical effects sew together Lynn Rosen’s kinetic script into a coherent and moving whole. Beyond the pop culture furor of Goldor $ Mythyka, inside its more enduring, tragic spirit, there is a lesson to be learned about the blinkered aspirations of a commodified heroism. And that is the best reason to catch this catchy play.” — Cultural Capitol
“An exciting audience experience!” — Offoffonline

Based on a truly true story! In 2008, playwright Lynn Rosen read an article she couldn’t get out of her head… A nice young couple enamored of fantasy role-playing games, Roger Dillon and Nicole Boyd, steal $7.4 million from an armored car company in Youngstown, Ohio. By the time they’re captured just 350 miles away (in Pipestem, West Virginia), the public has dubbed them the “Goth Bonnie and Clyde.”
Three years in the making! G$M is one of 4 plays commissioned in 2010 as part of The Germ Project, a New Georges initiative to combat the trend toward small-cast, one-set plays with plays of “scope & adventure,” “dream” plays, plays that challenge us as producers. Lynn leapt at that assignment, and we’ve been leaping after her ever since!
