Great River Shakespeare Festival adds performance of ‘An Iliad’


The Great River Shakespeare Festival has added another performance of “An Iliad” to the final week of the festival due to high demand.

The Dorothy B. Magnus theater has been packed night after night for performances of “An Iliad.” The emotional performances delivered by Andrew Carlson and Tarah Flanagan have left audiences speechless as they exit the theater. “An Iliad” is a modern re-telling of Homer’s epic tale, with some of the original text as well as contemporary language.

Due to high demand, GRSF has added another performance of “An Iliad.” Andrew Carlson will perform in this special matinee, which will begin at 2 p.m. on Thursday, July 27. The performances of “An Iliad” this past weekend sold out, and the closing performances are also sold out. Patrons may now order tickets for this additional performance online, in person at the box office, or over the phone at 507-474-7900. Please be advised this performance contains some strong language and descriptions of violence.
