Nominated for 3 Tony Awards!
Oscar® and Emmy® Award winner Robin Williams makes his Broadway debut in the New York premiere of Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo.
In Rajiv Joseph's new American play, a tiger haunts the streets of present day Baghdad seeking the meaning of life. As he witnesses the puzzling absurdities of war, the tiger encounters Americans and Iraqis who are searching for friendship, redemption and a toilet seat made of gold.
The New York Times says, "This boldly imagined, harrowing and surprisingly funny drama is wonderfully daring." A finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, this groundbreaking play comes to Broadway for a strictly limited, sixteen-week engagement directed by Tony Award® nominee Moisés Kaufman.
The cast also features Glenn Davis, Brad Fleischer, Hrach Titizian, Sheila Vand, Necar Zadegan and Arian Moayed, with Hend Ayoub, Corey Brill, Daoud Heidami and Sherman Howard.

-21 seats for $27 each, Cash Only at the box office
