Mary Zimmerman's White Snake opens in less than three weeks -- and it's her seventh show here at Berkeley Rep! She's among our most frequent guest directors, and she's a favorite with our patrons (and the critics).
To celebrate, let's take a look at the past six shows at the Theatre...
The Arabian Nights (2008-09, encore 2010)
Mary Zimmerman breathes new life into the tale of 1,001 nights.
"First rate entertainment... Zimmerman has a genius for building stage spectaculars from the most basic, old-fashioned materials." -- San Francisco Chronicle
Mary retells Jason's quest for the Golden Fleece.
"Exhilaratingly inventive... Very much an ensemble piece, with every actor standing out in multiple roles." --San Francisco Chronicle
The Secret in the Wings (2004)
A vivid staging of European fairy tales.
"Captivatingly simple, disturbingly evocative and richly transgressive..." -- San Francisco Chronicle
The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci (2003)
Mary creates a beautiful, beguiling, and brilliant canvas on which the mind of Leonardo is illuminated.
One of Mary's most beloved works, Metamorphoses stormed Broadway (and won a Tony Award) and is playing in Chicago this holiday season. Watch a nine-minute preview video on the Chicago Tribune's site.
Journey to the West (1996)
Mary adapts the story of Hsuan-Tsang, a Buddhist monk who traveled to India in the seventh century.
And now, a sneak peek at The White Snake!
