9780810119789: Metamorphoses: A Play

This play is based on Ovid's 15-volume work of transformation myths. Positioned in and around a large pool on the stage, the characters enact Zimmerman's adaptations of Ovid's tales, juxtaposing the ancient and the contemporary in both language and image. The tone of the drama likewise echoes the themes of change and contrast, from the humour of Phaeton's therapy session to the tragedy of Midas and his daughter. The volume contains a production history, the play script, and, because the visual aspect of the play is important, photographs from some of its past productions.

From the Publisher:

Metamorphoses opened on Broadway on March 4th, 2002. It has already sold 1,000 copies (as of 03/13/02). Zimmerman is well known in the Chicagoland area, due to her close association with the Lookingglass Theatre and Northwestern University. The book will be sold throughout the country, following the movement of the production. Metamorphoses' literature-into-drama approach gives the book a dual role in the marketplace, both as literature and as a script for performance. This is the first version of the play to appear in printed form.

Time Magazine's "Theater Event of the Year (2001)"

From the Back Cover:

Mary Zimmerman's Metamorphoses brings Ovid's tales to stunning visual life. Set in and around a large pool of water onstage, Metamorphoses juxtaposes the ancient and the contemporary in both language and image to reflect the variety and persistence of narrative in the face of inevitable change. Metamorphoses played around the country and Off Broadway before moving to Broadway's Circle in the Square Theatre in March 2002.
