Notes

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.
