Based on the original Greek myth, MEDUSA is the story of a woman who tries to make her own fate in a patriarchal world. When the god Poseidon assaults her by the sea one night, she learns just how little power she holds in the supposedly free and enlightened city of Athens. As Medusa fights back against both gods and mortals, rumors fly about this angry woman with “snakes in her hair.” The legend is born. Told with modern language and a darkly energetic score, Medusa is an ancient tragedy that is as timely and necessary now as ever.

7th Annual ĭmáGen Event

In its seventh year, the 2020 ĭmáGen collaboration with the Wharton Center Institute for Arts & Creativity supported by MSU Federal Credit Union shifts from staged reading to documentary film! Viewers will get an inside look at the work that goes into developing a new musical. The film follows Broadway directors, actors and choreographers as they collaborate with MSU musical theatre students, dance students, and local high school actors in the creation of the new musical, Medusa.
