A to Z: Antigone at the MET

The blog stopped a bit last month with no posts since the 20th. However, the blog will have many posts this month since I am doing the A to Z challenge again this year. So without further ado I will start the challenge with Antigone for A.

The MET is the Maryland Ensemble Theatre located in the theater district of Frederick, Maryland. Their version of Antigone was not the Greek classic. However, it was a creative adaptation by Reiner Prochaska who is a solid actor who shows off a lot more of his theater skills in this production. You can read my review on the DC Metro Theater Arts page here.

Here is some rehearsal footage of the cast practicing for the show via YouTube:


I'll be back Monday with a post for B and perhaps a regular post later in the day on Monday...

Great review! I enjoyed reading through it. Loved the photo of the Antigone in her costume.

When I first read the name as a teenager, I pronounced it anti-gawn in my head. For some reason, I've never forgotten that.

Hi Mike - I enjoyed your review, the photos were captivating. I have never seen a production of Antigone, if I lived closer I would take this in.

I look forward to seeing what comes next in your A to Z posts.

Interesting! I've never even heard of Antigone, sad to say. Good luck on the A-Z Challenge!
