"A witty, confrontational show"

"Your favorite Euripidean diva has some serious beef with just about everything.  In Emilio Williams’ new one woman show, Medea’s Got Some Issues, she’s pissed at Jason for screwing the princess, at Americans for not recognizing that she’s actually Latina (and casting girls from Jersey in her role instead), and at David Mamet for going Republican.  Williams, who wrote the award winning Tables and Beds, as well as Smartphones: A Pocket-Sized Farce, has constructed a witty, confrontational show giving us a contemporary look into the psyche of Euripides’ Medea."

"Penelope Cruz should watch her back..." says

“Medea's Got Some Issues” back by popular demand at Off Broadway’s United Solo Festival this Sunday November 4th at 4pm @ Theater Row

All details here:

TICKETS, with a price of $18, are available at the Theatre ROW Box Office and online through Telecharge at

“If I had to name the funniest thing I’ve seen so far this year, I would have to list Ana Asensio performing Emilio Williams’ one-woman show, Medea’s Got Some Issues as one of the strongest contenders. A Spanish riff on the Greek classic performed in English (got that?), Asensio’s accent is thick as hot chocolate in Madrid and her comedic timing is spot on. Penelope Cruz should watch her back.”

Review from Stage and Cinema

Thanks to Stage and Cinema and critic Paul Kubicki for his support!!!

"Williams, who wrote the award winning Tables and Beds, as well as Smartphones: A Pocket-Sized Farce, has constructed a witty, confrontational show giving us a contemporary look into the psyche of Euripides’ Medea."


"As Medea, Ana Asensio has an unrivaled comic timing that drives this show. Asensio is deliciously vicious, but given Medea’s circumstances, with good reason. She powers through the script with twisted conviction, but not without acknowledging the subtleties of the role."

"Together, Williams and Asensio craft a multi-dimensional, highly nuanced take on Medea, accounting for many of these different perspectives, and simultaneously affirm and jab at her stance as a feminist paragon."
