METAMORPHOSES

September 19, 2012 – January 6, 2013

Written and Directed by Ensemble Member Mary Zimmerman

Tony Award-winner for Best Direction of a Play

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.

From a simple, rippling pool of water, Ensemble Member Mary Zimmerman conjured the force of Ovid’s myths into gorgeous imagery, provocative moments and breathtaking storytelling. Don’t miss your chance to experience the magic and enchantment of this very special anniversary production, ten years after its smash hit Broadway opening.

Shows that theater can provide not just escape but sometimes a glimpse of the divine.

– TIME

Entrancing… an evening of almost magical changes, wrought through the unique imagery of theater
