This co-production between The Nora Theatre Company and Underground Railway Theater transports you to ancient Persia, where King Shahryar, 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 setting was great ... alll seats had good views; we would return to that theater. We were both looking forward to the biting edge of MIT's unique sense of humor; we also expected to see situations more subtle and specific to MIT than cookies and unwelcome sexual overtures ... While we were disappointed to find neither, it was still fun to be out and seeing an actress take on the challenge of her craft.
