Playwright Mary Zimmerman Source Author David R. Slavitt (translation) Source Title Myths of Ovid Producer Berkeley Repertory Theatre  [Website] Description Berkeley Rep presented Mary Zimmerman’s breathtaking Metamorphoses at the turn of the millennium—it later received a Broadway run and garnered her a Tony Award. She’s become a Berkeley Rep favorite, enthralling audiences with eight gorgeous productions. Don’t miss your chance to experience her signature tour de force, the provocative and mesmerizing Metamorphoses.

Dreams and reality collide with gods and mortals in Mary Zimmerman’s ode to the power of love—and the shadows that lurk beneath it. From a wading pool in our intimate 400-seat theatre, she summons Ovid’s classical tales of passion, betrayal, hope, and transformation, inviting us into a realm of shared cultural myths and beautiful, unshakable visions.
