An Interview with "Medea" Actor Eric Wilson

   The classic Greek tragedy Medea revolves around the title character and her husband, Jason (the hero best known from his work with the Argonauts).  

   For today's interview, let's hear from the actor who plays that part in the show, which wraps up this weekend at the Renaissance Theatre in Huntington.

   We asked the handsome and talented Eric Wilson several questions, but he wrapped up his comments in one concise answer:

Q: Tell us about the play Medea.

Eric: This show is $@%#&*^ gorgeous. I haven't felt so much pain, happiness, and resolve in many years. It is fresh, delivered with precision and unappetizingly delicious. Prepare to have all of the feels during the curtain call, and do yourself a favor and see this show.

   Thanks, Eric!

  Medea is being presented by Arts Resources for the Tri-State (ARTS). The classic play will be staged on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 28 and 29 at 8 p.m. on the ARTS Renaissance Main Stage at 900 8th Street in Huntington. Tickets are $15 for the show only, or $30 for dinner and the show. Reservations are required for the dinner - call 304-733-2787.
