About this show

For 1,001 nights, Scheherazade uses the power of storytelling to save her own life. Each evening, she captivates King Shahryar by spinning tales of love, lust, sorrow, and revenge. Comic stories like "The Jester's Wife" alternate with mysterious dreams and moving stories of love and sacrifice. This collection of Middle Eastern stories is a testament to how the magic of storytelling can transform people, illuminate their minds, and redeem their souls. The production features live music by Tom Teasley.

Note: This show is recommended for ages 16 and up.
