"The Fourth Messenger," a new musical by Tanya Shaffer and Vienna Teng, is loosely based on the life of the Buddha. In our contemporary re-imagining, the awakened one is a woman with a mysterious past, known to her followers as Mama Sid. At once epic and intimate, comic and profound, "The Fourth Messenger" investigates what it means to be both enlightened and human.
