The White Snake
It’s an ancient Chinese story—girl meets boy and falls head over heels. The only problem is that the girl is a white serpent from the spirit world, and to win her love’s heart she must come down from the mountain and take human form. Visionary director Mary Zimmerman (Metamorphoses, The Odyssey) transforms McCarter’s stage with her sublime theater magic in this electrifying, radiant, and delightful play, adapted from a classic Chinese myth. Full of heart, this elegant and dazzling production promises an adventure for audiences of all ages, and a love story like you’ve never seen before.
“A love story of timeless appeal that’s absolutely worth seeing now.” – The Oregonian
“Mary Zimmerman’s lovely, deeply affecting work...recaptures the primal allure of the theater. – Time
