"Hephaestus brings to life the underdog of Greek myths:  Lame-legged, seemingly useless Hephaestus, who pines for the love of Aphrodite and endures the scorn of his family.  Wit and humor combined with soaring contemporary melodies bring the often one dimensional Greek Gods to palpable life in this, a true MTM and Wisconsin original." For more information, visit Music Theatre of Madison.
