Reviews

"Writer-director Mary Zimmerman's lovely, deeply affecting work . . . recaptures the primal allure of the theater. . . . It shows that theater can provide not just escape but sometimes a glimpse of the divine." --Time

"Funny one moment, achingly sorrowful the next, Metamorphoses somehow manages both to lift you out of the moment you're living in and speak to it with piercing directness." --Wall Street Journal

"With its emphases on love, loss and the transforming powers of memory and the imagination . . . the production has been reducing calloused New Yorkers to sobs."

--New York Times
