Presented at the off-Broadway Second Stage some two and a half years after its premiere in Chicago, Metamorphoses is neither a musical nor a straight play nor a dance work. It fuses elements of all three kinds of theater in the service of bringing Ovid's tales to stunning visual life. Set in and around a large pool of water onstage, Metamorphoses juxtaposes the ancient and the contemporary and was called by Time the "theater event of the year."

"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
