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.
