Tony Award-winning Ensemble Member Mary Zimmermanâ€™s smash hit Metamorphoses will kick off Lookingglassâ€™ 25th Anniversary Season
In 1998, Lookingglass debuted Metamorphoses, a play of such grace and beauty that the memory of it still lingers in the minds of audiences today. The critically-acclaimed, record-breaking Chicago engagement led to a Broadway production that garnered Mary Zimmerman the 2002 Tony Award for Best Director and catapulted Lookingglass onto the national stage.Â Â
From a simple, rippling pool of water, Ensemble Member Mary Zimmerman conjured the force of Ovidâ€™s myths into gorgeous imagery, provocative moments and breathtaking storytelling. Donâ€™t miss your chance to experience the magic and enchantment of this very special anniversary production, ten years after its smash hit Broadway opening.
