METAMORPHOSES
Based on the Myths of Ovid
Written and originally directed by Mary Zimmerman
Director: Sal Trapani

First performed by students at Northwestern University, where playwright Zimmerman is a professor of performance studies, this play opened at Broadway’s Circle on the Square Theater in March 2002. Based on Ovid’s transformation myths, the play subtly mixes the ancient stories of pathos and tragedy with contemporary language, humor, and thought. The themes of love, the inevitability of change, and the human ability to adapt to change are timeless, as is amply demonstrated by the sometimes eerie closeness of a vignette to the original lines from Ovid, which still manage to resonate with modern viewers.
