What if the ancient myth of the goddess Persephone took place in modern times? Greek deities get a glamorous makeover for Mythic, Marcus Stevens and Oran Eldor’s new pop-rock musical. It follows the eventual queen of the underworld on a journey of self-discovery in a world where gods take the form of rock stars, politicians and socialites. The offspring of a boho-chic Demeter encounters her all-powerful father Zeus, bad boy Hades and the Britney Spears-esque goddess of love Aphrodite, played by Jessica Gallant (pictured). The Segal Centre for Performing Arts presents the North American premiere of the immortal musical propelled by epic anthems and the complexity of the mother-daughter relationship.

Price: $53-67.
