It's good news all the way for Mythic - currently at Charing Cross Theatre.
Driven by rave notices from the press and achieving a clutch of of four and five star ratings, it's probably not such a surprise that new musical Mythic is getting a well-deserved extension to its current run at Charing Cross Theatre.
Mythic opened on Monday 1 October and was due to end its 7-week run this weekend on Saturday 25 November, but it will now get a three week extension to close on 15 December.
And there's more ...
Genevieve McCarthy, who plays Aphrodite, has been nominated Best Female in a Supporting Role in a Musical at the Off West End awards.
And ... in just two weeks time, the show's original cast recording is scheduled for release.
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.
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.
