Eurydice- Purdue University Theatre,
Eric was cast as the Nasty Interesting Man/Child/Lord of the Underworld in Sarah Ruhl's heart-wrenching modernization of the Greek myth of Orpheus, "Eurydice", directed by Noelle Monroe. This production was staged in the Nancy T. Hansen Theatre in Pao Hall at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN. This character was a particularly interesting challenge as an eccentric mixture of power, seduction, childishness, and puppeteering that gave Eric a chance to explore new directions in his acting capabilities.
"Eric Emerick especially shined as the Lord of the Underworld, unleashing the character’s absurdity. That offered a solid contrast with his dual role as the Nasty Interesting Man."
