Glam Slam Ulysses is a 1993 stage production, loosely based on Homer’s Odyssey. It combined video and live performance and was advertised as ‘The Homer-Erotic Odyssey of Ulysses and His Gang, “Strays of the World”, Through the Universe of Glam Slam’ and billed as being ‘presented in Glam-o-Rama’ and featuring ‘13 new songs’, where each song was meant to represented an element from Homer’s Odyssey. It was performed at Glam Slam in Los Angeles, California with a capacity of 400 patrons per show for the event. Tickets costed $ 19.99 for the 7:30 shows and $ 15.00 for the Sunday matinees.
The show starring Carmen Electra as Penelope and Calypso ran for a limited time, with performances from 21 August 1993 until 4 September 1993. The male lead was performed by Frank Williams and Jamie King provided the choreography.
Prince does not appear in the production, but all the music is composed and performed by him.
The production was initially thought to be touring the States following its opening stint at Glam Slam, but reviews were bleak and production was halted after the initial series of dates were played in Los Angeles.
