In ancient Baghdad, a courageous young girl postpones her execution by weaving magical tales for the troubled king. Genies and jesters, lovers and thieves spring to life from Scheherazade’s imagination-allowing her to win the king’s heart even as she secures her freedom. Tony Award-winning director and playwright Mary Zimmerman (“Metamorphoses”) celebrates the wonder of storytelling and the redemptive power of love in this “exhilarating, imaginative theatrical escape”(“Variety”) that “Chicago” magazine calls a “feast for the eyes and ears.”
