2017-18 SEASON  


[Based on the Myths of Ovid]

Written and Originally Directed by Mary Zimmerman

In Mary Zimmerman’s Tony Award-nominated play, Metamorphoses, the classical tales of Ovid come to magical life in all their playful, passionate, savage, and elemental glory. In a visually fantastic world—set in and around a pool of water—the human and the divine collide, and such familiar figures as Poseidon, King Midas, and Eurydice share universal stories of love, hope, death, betrayal, and transformation. Beneath clouds and rainfall, mythological characters dip in and out of the onstage pool, where the waters hold both serenity and danger.

Into the Woods

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece... and a rare modern classic. 

The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
