Berkeley Repertory Theatre, in co-production with The Guthrie Theater presents

METAMORPHOSES

Based on the myths of Ovid
Written & Directed by Mary Zimmerman

Metamorphoses is a revival of Mary Zimmerman’s Tony-winning adaptation of Ovid’s myths. This production began its run at Berkeley Rep and then toured to The Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis. Being a fan of Metamorphoses and Mary Zimmerman's work since college, I was so excited to be a part of this. Half of the cast were Looking Glass Theatre folks who had been with the show since its genesis, and it was fascinating to hear their tales about the long and rich history of this play and ensemble. It was a very physically demanding show - the set was a large pool of water that we dance, run, drown, and splash around in. With the help of a lot of physical therapy and antibiotics, I survived a lot of body aches and two ear infections!
