| Well Acted Stage Version
This is basically the filmed version of the 1982 Tony awarded Broadway revival. It therefore comes across as very stagy, and its' impact is diminished on the small screen. Nonetheless, the camera does capture two great performances that help make it a powerful viewing experience.

Zoe Caldwell is amazing (she won a Tony award) as the mad Medea who exacts revenge on her husband in this classic Greek tragedy. She turns in a performance that I have found to be the best interpretation of the role. Judith Anderson is also astonishing as Medea's maid, and she shows what great talent can do with a small role.

If you get an opportunity to see this production it's worth a look.
