The world premiere of MYTHIC, the acclaimed new pop musical, is extending its run at London’s Charing Cross Theatre by 3 weeks to 15 December.

The original cast recording will be released in 2 weeks.

The relationship between a mother and her teenage daughter can be sheer Hell – especially if that daughter is a Greek goddess with a taste for the Underworld. MYTHIC, by Marcus Stevens (Book and Lyrics) and Oran Eldor (Music), turns the ancient Greek story of Persephone on its head, with the gods as chart-topping rock stars, power-hungry politicians, and professional VIPs. In a world of Olympian celebrity, Persephone struggles between her mother Demeter’s expectations and a desire to find her own path. But her wish for independence comes back to bite her when she gets trapped in the Hell with Greece’s perennial bad boy, Hades. The journey that follows is an offbeat, emotionally-charged tale for ancient and modern times.

MYTHIC opened on Monday 1 October and was due to end its run this 7-week run this weekend on Saturday 25 November.

Genevieve McCarthy, who plays Aphrodite, has  been nominated Best Female in a Supporting Role in a Musical at the Off West End awards.
