Tony Award winner Mary Zimmerman creates an enchanting theatrical spectacle with live music and sumptuous visuals. In this visionary staging of a classic Chinese fable, a gentle serpent transforms into a beautiful woman. She falls in love with a dashing young man and decides to stay human forever, until a wicked monk discovers her true identity and vows to destroy her. The White Snake is an unforgettable theatrical event for all ages that NPR called "strikingly beautiful." The New York Times proclaimed that Zimmerman "creates richly imagistic works—her eye refines and refinishes, drawing ever-sharper pictures from the texts she theatricalizes."
