by Mary Zimmerman
Directed by Tristan Burke
From a simple, rippling pool of water, Zimmerman conjures the force of Ovid’s myths into gorgeous imagery, provocative moments and breathtaking storytelling. Metamorphoses juxtaposes the ancient and the contemporary in both language and image to reflect the variety and persistence of narrative in the face of inevitable change. Tales of passion, betrayal, hope, and transformation invite us into a realm of shared cultural myths and beautiful, unshakable visions.
Nominated for three 2002 Tony Awards, including “Best Play,” “Metamorphoses” earned Zimmerman a Tony for “Best Direction of a Play.”
