Narrators Almarie Guerra and Samuel Maria Gomez deliver candid and sobering performances in this contemporary retelling of the Orpheus and Eurydice story with Afro-Latinx characters. Pheus is a charming boy from the Bronx who often serenades the local neighborhood girls. When he spends time with Eury, a disturbed girl who survived Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, he learns she is haunted by spirits. Guerra, narrating Eury’s perspective, and Gomez, narrating Pheus’s, offer a complementary mix of hopeful and tragic emotions. Both expertly create authenticity and lush detail in this drama. Fans of the mythological legend will be mesmerized by the parallels in this sweet romance between an optimistic boy and a troubled girl.
