Adapted and Directed by Mary Zimmerman
Tony Award-winning Ensemble Member Mary Zimmerman returns to the Water Tower Water Works, following the sold-out Chicago run and three city tour of Argonautika, with her boldly re-imagined adaptation of one of the world's most enduring works of literature. When he discovers his wife in the arms of another man, King Shahryar vows to ruthlessly murder every virgin in the kingdom. His brutality is interrupted only when he encounters the clever maiden Scheherezade, whose captivating stories may just save her life. This stunning theatrical piece incorporates powerful storytelling, lush visuals, and vibrant music to weave a rich tapestry that celebrates the redemptive power of story telling.
