The Arabian Nights
by Mary Zimmerman

April 12 – 14 and 19 – 21, 2012 (Mainstage)

Directed by Alice Rainey Berry

To save her life, the beautiful bride Scheherazade must spin hypnotic tales of genies, jesters, thieves, and kings – winning her freedom by eventually winning her husband’s heart. As long as she can keep the king entertained with her magical stories he will spare her. Amidst a thousand tales of honor, revenge, and humor, only love emerges victorious in an exotic place we now know as Iraq. “If you want theatre at its most unpretentiously poetic, as humane as it is elegant, I commend to you The Arabian Nights," raved New York magazine.
