Two of the 9 muses

To A Muse was per­formed Feb­ru­ary 25, 2015 at the school where she teaches in East Hanover, NJ. This was the sec­ond per­for­mance; the show pre­miered in 2012. To A Muse is set in a modern-day mid­dle school, where stu­dents worry about a uni­ver­sal theme: get­ting an ‘A’ on their project! But what to project to do? Dur­ing a school trip to the local museum, Theodore com­plains that if only he had some inspi­ra­tion, he’d get a great grade. He hap­pens to voice this wish in front of a paint­ing of the nine muses, who sud­denly mate­ri­al­ize, com­mit­ted to help­ing Theodore with his project.

The muses explain that, once invoked, they are not per­mit­ted to leave until they pro­vide the requested inspi­ra­tion. Theodore’s sis­ter, Thea, and his best friend, Hec­tor, worry over Theodore’s seem­ing loss of sanity–until, that is, they too acci­den­tally invoke the muses. While Cal­liope works on Theodore, the other muses busy them­selves with try­ing to repair the dull, hum­drum life they see all around the school. Soon, every­one is act­ing a lit­tle crazy, all under the spell of a lit­tle inspiration!
