This co-production between The Nora Theatre Company and Underground Railway Theater transports you to ancient Persia, where King Shahrayar, after being driven mad by his first wife's infidelity, brands all women unfaithful. He takes a new bride every night and has each one executed the following day -- until he meets Shahrazad, who enchants him with magical tales spanning the globe, winning his love and respect in the process. Based on the collection of folk tales One Thousand and One Nights and adapted by Dominic Cooke, Arabian Nights is rich with suspense, romance and hilarity for all ages. Daniel Gidron directs.

The visual effects and clever set design were great. I also enjoyed the multi-limbed caterpillar, and some of the dialogues were very funny and had a good rhythm. I didn't really enjoy the singing that much, though, and sometimes the different segments of the show didn't hold together as well as I would have liked. This is not the fault of the show, but the temperature in the theater must have been over 80 degrees and that really detracted from my enjoyment.
Overall, though, it was not a bad theater experience.
Underground Railway Theater presents Alice's Adventures Underground: an award-winning adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classic Alice books, featuring outrageous puppets, sets of hand-painted silk, and virtuoso performances by an intergenerational ensemble of actors.
