About This Show

The Secret in the Wings offers a vivid staging of European fairy tales retold in the imaginative and colorful style for which director Mary Zimmerman is acclaimed. A captivating voyage into our collective childhood subconscious, The Secret in the Wings intertwines elements from Beauty and the Beast with four lesser-known stories into a dream-like exploration of the darker side of human impulses. Punctuating the tales’ haunting truths with breathtaking visual moments and poignant snatches of song, Zimmerman’s latest endeavor challenges the belief that fairy tales are only for children; this show is her invitation for adults to immerse themselves in a rare and magical storybook experience.
