Paul Causman in “An Iliad”
Beerman enhances ‘An Iliad’ with original music, performance
Dr. Burton Beerman, Distinguished Artist Professor Emeritus, brings his singular talents as a composer and performer to a new interpretation of Homer’s tragedy “The Iliad.” The Valentine Theatre in Toledo will present the one-man show “An Iliad” this weekend, performed by Toledo actor Paul Causman, accompanied by Beerman onstage and through multimedia elements.
In this version of the ancient story, the man most of Toledo knows as Scrooge through his yearly performance with The Toledo Rep’s “A Christmas Carol” takes on a markedly different role. Causman will have no chorus, no props, no dialogue — he will be the single actor, a storyteller, with a script based on a story that has stood the test of time.
