METAMORPHOSES

Based on the myths of ovid

Written and originally directed by Mary Zimmerman
Directed by Maeli Goren

Ms. Goren and her troupe have created a kaleidoscope of theatrical ingenuity seldom seen...What a wonderful start to a courageous season. Please see it.”
— Stu Duncan, US 1
Metamorphoses

Mary Zimmerman's Tony-Award nominated play brings Ovid's classic tales to life through a mixture of contemporary and ancient styles, the use of musical accompaniment, and a shifting world of fabrics. An exploration of change, rebirth, and the persistence of the human spirit, Metamorphoses takes classic stories and makes them achingly relevant to modern audiences. 

Writer-director Mary Zimmerman’s lovely, deeply affecting work recaptures the primal allure of the theater. . . . It shows that theater can provide not just escape but sometimes a glimpse of the divine.
