Act fast! These tickets won't last. We saw Metamorphoses opening night and this production is beyond beautiful. This is THE must see show of the season. A decade after Lookingglass first brought Metamorphoses to life, the theatre world was still reeling. I missed the original run but spoke to a hand full of people right before I saw the show who said the production literally changed their lives. "You would remember if you'd seen it." "After seeing Metamorphoses the first time, I've made it a point to see everything Mary Zimmerman has had a hand in." There's a reason this show went on to Broadway and garnered Mary Zimmerman a 2002 Tony Award for Best Director.
This is definitely a show for mature audiences. Be aware there is male frontal nudity, an incest scene and every vice known to Ovid. That said, everything is done in an artistic, amazing way and teens and evenmature tweens would be able to handle this show with parental guidance and discussion. If in doubt, check it out. As always, you know your own children best and your comfort level and theirs. Particularly for older children who are familiar with an enjoy and understand Ovid's stories, Midas, Narcissus and the others will forever vividly spring to life after seeing Metamorphoses live.
Transformative is the word that comes to mind. From a watery world reminiscent of something primordial, baptismal and subconscious, Metamorphoses emerges with the all the passions, foibles, and human nature of the Greek myths. I want to come back again and bring everyone I know.Highly recommended!
