Troubadour Theater Company and Getty Museum presents Homer's epic tale in five pre-recorded webisodes, offering a wild retelling of Odysseus's adventure. Get the family together for "The ODDyssey" on Sundays—from July 19 through August 16—and meet beloved mythological characters on Getty Museum's YouTube channel at 3pm PT.
Stay-at-home orders or not, nothing can stop the Troubadour Theater Company (aka: the Troubies) from giving us some much-needed comedy! The ODDyssey recounts Homer's epic tale in five webisodes, offering a wild retelling of Odysseus's adventure for audiences of all ages. "The ODDyssey is a family-friendly, seat-of-our pants, stuck-at-home mix of wacky and whimsical storytelling by a cast of kooky, colorful characters," says Troubies' artistic director Matt Walker. Encounter the cyclops, witches, sirens, angry gods, and multi-snake-headed creatures, gathering on Zoom from their respective dwellings. Inspired by Zoom's low-resolution quality, The ODDyssey is retro-styled with a variety of music including sitcom song remakes and homemade props. So, get the family together and meet some of these beloved mythological characters as they struggle with communicating remotely—just like the rest of us.
Each 15-20-minute episode will premiere on the Getty's YouTube channel, Sundays at 3:00 p.m. PST, from July 19 to August 16, 2020.
Audiences can live chat with the Troubies during each episode's YouTube premiere. After the final episode, audiences are invited to join the cast at their virtual reunion party. Once episodes have premiered they will be available to view at any time on the Getty Museum's YouTube channel.
