The ODDyssey recounts Homer’s epic tale in five webisodes of family-friendly, “wacky and whimsical” zoom-based storytelling courtesy of the Getty Villa, where the Troubies have performed before. While the cyclops, witches, sirens, gods and monsters logging in from their lairs might have a more carnivalesque, dare we say clownish, character than the Greek classic might otherwise evoke, this lightly frantic production is a true reflection of the present moment. For five consecutive Sundays, each 15-20 minute episode will premiere on the Getty’s YouTube channel, where audiences can live chat with the actors during each one’s debut and at the reunion party at the end. Sundays, July 19-August 16, 3 p.m.; free.
