The Cort Theatre will be the home of The Green Bird, the new production by double Tony-Award winning director, Julie Taymor. The creator of The Lion King, will return to Broadway, this Spring with this critically-acclaimed and eye-popping satirical fable. The show is a wicked comedy of outrageous characters in which fantasy and the truest love meet in a place unlike any ever seen. The play is both the story of a king who longs for his lost wife and of brother and sister twins searching for their true identities. Come enjoy this banquet of Taymor's singular artistry, an intoxicating blend of visionary theatre that uses puppetry, masks, live performers, music and sheer imagination to tell its magical and moving tale.
