After a highly acclaimed run in 1998, “Metamorphoses” went on to off-Broadway and, ultimately, Broadway where it won director Mary Zimmerman a Tony in 2002. Returning to the Lookingglass stage all these years later, with most of the same cast and design team along with Zimmerman at the helm, the piece is perhaps better than ever. This collection of mythological tales brought to life is emotionally gripping and hilarious, not to mention both timely and timeless.
