Mary Zimmerman's Metamorphoses to return to Lookingglass
Lookingglass Theatre Company says it will open its 25th season (!) this fall by revisiting Metamorphoses, Mary Zimmerman's 1998 adaptation of Ovid. The production, which played out in and around an onstage pool, made its way to Broadway in 2002, making Zimmerman just the second woman to win the Tony Award for direction of a play.
Zimmerman's new production (exact dates are yet to be determined) will reportedly feature a number of Lookingglass ensemble members as well as original cast members. Following the Lookingglass run, Metamorphoses will play Washington D.C.'s Arena Stage beginning in February 2013. The remainder of Lookingglass's 2012–13 season will be announced in coming weeks.
