Directed by Tony Award winner Mary Zimmerman (Metamorphoses), The White Snake brings to magical life the tale of a gentle serpent from the spirit world who's lived atop a mountain for centuries. One day, after transforming into a beautiful young woman, this spirit travels into the human world -- finding unexpected love, happiness and family. Wishing to remain a human forever, her plans are thwarted by a vindictive monk who has discovered her true identity. A story that is at once funny and moving, this stunningly staged production is a modern, magical adaptation of a classic Chinese fable filled with dazzling costumes, beautiful music and timeless appeal.

My friends and I are looking to go again! Witty, funny, fast-moving - a linguistic treat! Then, of course, is the cultural examination. As an Asian-American, I found myself pondering all the profound subtleties that were captured and embedded in the show. However, you don't have to be Asian at all to have appreciated it - as evidenced by the make-up of the audience enjoying themselves on Saturday night - given the interesting display and contrast of Chinese as well as Western traditions and mores. Well casted with sharp spot-on acting by all; clean, undistracting scenery. All in all, loved how clever, smart and tightly produced on all levels the entire show was. English subtitles for Mandarin portions.
