Hephaestus: Workshop

By Nathan Fosbinder

Directed by Catie O'Donell

"Not all gods play nice."

​In 2018, MTM begins its first full workshop process of a new musical by Madison native Nathan Fosbinder. Audiences will see the work in its developmental stages and have the opportunity to share thoughts on the show in preparation for a fully-realized, world premiere production to be staged by MTM in 2019. Hephaestus (Heh-fes-tus) tells the story of the oft-forgotten outcast of Greek myths. He is an artist, blacksmith, and hopeless romantic, desperate for the love of Aphrodite, yet facing epic hurdles to win her affections. Brutally cast out by his mother, Hera, he embarks on a quest for love, identity, and art, surrounded by humorous and modern versions of Greek mythological characters.

At this staged workshop performance, audiences will see the musical in its early stages, view costume and set renderings, explore vision boards, hear early demos, and offer their feedback, which will feed into the creation of the final product.
