Critics Picks September 9

Ron Cephas Jones in the role of Prometheus,
Ron Cephas Jones can hold an audience in thrall with just his voice. That’s a good thing, because the actor is strapped to a 23-foot-wheel and cranked above the stage for nearly the entirety of Aeschylus’s pointed commentary on men and gods. Prometheus remains defiant. Jones, however, keeps his cool, the text seemingly emanating from his soul.

Paysen Lewis in the role of Peter,
Paysen Lewis admirably transcends the show’s relentlessly overbearing backup band to project Peter’s abject misery at not being able to reveal his love for Jason.
—Julio Martinez

Mirjana Jokovic in the role of Io,
The hapless Io—punished by Hera for a dalliance with Zeus by being transformed into a heifer tormented by a gadfly—personifies the suffering of humanity at the whims of the gods. Jokovic makes it personal. Her suffering palpable in her face, voice, and manner, this gifted actress chills the blood.
—Bob Verini

Nicole Parker in the role of Fanny Brice,
Nicole Parker makes the iconic role of Fanny Brice her very own, growing from insecure performer to sadder-but-wiser ex-wife. Parker pretends to dance badly but can actually move at Broadway-chorus level. Her singing, meanwhile, is stellar, as she belts the famous tunes, leaving the audience weeping with awe for her and compassion for her character.
