Ion @ Sidney Harman Hall

The Shakespeare Theatre's latest production is a fun and fast paced romp from the classic playwright Euripides. Keith Eric Chappelle is a dead ringer for Obama and this thought does not leave me at any point during the production. Company regulars Aubrey Deeker as Hermes, Colleen Delany as Athena, and Floyd King as the Old Counsellor complete the cast and are superb as ever. The highlight for me is newcomer Patricia Santomasso who is sassy, fun, cute and wears the shortest skirt I have ever seen on stage. At just under one hour and thirty five minutes, this is the shortest production I have seen at the Harman but man is it good fun.
