Theresa Schiavone of Colorado Public Radio reports on the play "Tantalus." The marathon-length Greek drama begins in Denver this weekend and is scheduled to travel to London in January. While 3 days of metered verse might be too much for some people, the producers of "Tantalus" say the drama's themes are still contemporary. They hope a more modern script will hold the audience's attention.
