About this show

From the creator of the Broadway and Kansas City smash Metamorphoses comes this glorious and extraordinary retelling of one of the greatest epics of world literature. Zimmerman's stunning theatrical event is a series of stories brilliantly woven by the beautiful princess Scheherezade -- one story a night, for 1001 nights, to save her own life. As long as she can keep the king entertained with her magical stories of beauty, honor, love, and the search for wisdom, he will spare her. With Zimmerman's famed fusion of gorgeous music, inventive staging, and highly theatrical storytelling, The Arabian Nights gives us an exhilarating view of the lush, rich legacy of the place we now know as Iraq.
