WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Metamorphoses is based on Ovid's classic narrative poem, which tells the transformation myths of the ancient Greeks and Romans. Using contemporary language and familiar characters, such as King Midas and his golden touch and Orpheus and Eurydice in the underworld, Zimmerman's Metamorphoses explores the meaning of being alive through moments of change and the expression of universal emotions.  The focal point of the set for Metamorphoses is a large pool in which much of the play's action takes place.?? "...Zimmerman's lovely, deeply affecting work...shows that theater can provide not just escape but sometimes a glimpse of the divine." -- Time Magazine "Mary Zimmerman's beautiful and deeply humane Metamorphoses...arrives in this wounded city like a small gift from the gods" -- Wall Street Journal "With its emphases on...the transforming powers of...the imagination...the production has been reducing calloused New Yorkers to sobs." -- New York Times Directed by Sean Harris
