Tony Award-winning director Mary Zimmerman is beloved by Rep audiences for her productions here of The Notebooks of Leonardo, The Odyssey and Metamorphoses. Her latest creation, The Secret in the Wings, is a fantastic retelling of four emotionally-charged but unfamiliar fairy tales, "Three Blind Queens," "Allerleirah," "The Princess Who Wouldn't Laugh and Silent for Seven Years," framed by a unique twist on Perrault's beloved classic, Beauty and the Beast. Her altogether spellbinding, visually captivating and surprise-filled tapestry of rarely told European fairy tales are often strange and warping stories. And like the very best of the genre, children may enjoy Zimmerman's fairy tales, but it is adults who will find them the most evocative, fulfilling and visionary. Chicago Sun-Times critic Hedy Weiss described Wings as "hauntingly beautiful … a meticulously cut gem of theatrical craft."
