Don’t Look is the modern day love story of Eurydice (Allyce Torres) and Orpheus (Zachery Alexander) based on the Greek myth also involving Persephone (Rebecca Flores). They’ve been together so long, they can’t remember how they met. She is an out of work actress. He is a struggling poet. They love each other deeply and the chemistry is felt on stage. They embrace and kiss often. It wouldn’t surprise anyone in the audience if they were a couple in real life.
Orpheus works very hard on his art and starts to pull away. When Eurydice requests that he spend more time with her, he replies “My art needs love more than you do right now.” This deeply hurts her. The tension builds and their relationship struggles to survive.
It’s an intimate performance that fits well in the set created at the Den Theatre. The lighting and sound are expertly done to draw the audience into the world of the play. And to top it all, the performances by all the actors are fantastic and emotionally rich.
