Akropol (1996)

This musical shows of the Acropole dominated Greek theater during the 1950s and 60s. Acropole follows Prince, the self-made producer of this unusual and mythic theater, and Lakis, the cross-dressing actress who specializes in comic female roles. The story culminates on closing night, when cast and crew recreate the "Alalum," a traditional piece by Aristophanes resplendent with the unexpected, the spontaneous and the insane.
