GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Based on an ancient story based around a myth, this musical told the story with a modern twist on a rendition written for the modern audience. The musical was able to use it voice to make statements, but the most prominent being about the gender roles in this ancient time. Nick Christman who played Kleonike a female character in the play was happy to take part in the production. “A women can do anything a man can do. Actually its deeper than that” he said. “The show is trying to show that anyone no matter what you identity as, you can make change happen.” Christman was just one of the many character to play a role of another sex, an intentional commentary on the universal tale.
