Peter Brook's Mahabharata

I'd like to see or do a revival of Peter Brook's Mahabharata.  Now that actors have been playing for a while with Viewpoints and Suzuki there may be rich casting options available. I'm almost surprised SITI Company hasn't done it already though I suspect it only does original work.  I do know of one excellent space for it in the Philadelphia area.  However, I also suspect my enthusiasm for Brook's Mahabharata isn't widely shared.  It requires an appetite both for philosophical ruminating and sustaining attention.  It's not Noh, not that challenging, but challenging enough.

A number of my MFA '09 classmates would be wonderful in it.
