New York City
In the palace of King Shahrayer, a young queen will be put to death in the morning, like a thousand brides before her. Her only chance is to keep the vengeful king so entertained that he will postpone her execution. In an unprecedented collaboration with Colorado College and the Pikes Peak Library District, Theatreworks creates a unique theatrical version of the great classic from the Middle East. Enjoy a journy to old Baghdad, a land of genies, flying carpets, powerful sultans, magic lanterns, crafty thieves, talking birds, and amazing stories which you’ll never want to end.
