Journey to the West at Central Square Theater



November 25 - December 31 2016

Adapted by Mary Zimmerman From the translation by Anthony C. Yu Directed by Lee Mikeska Gardner Music by Shirish Korde


In the beloved comic Chinese novel a monk travels from China to India in search of spiritual enlightenment and Buddhist scriptures. Mary Zimmerman’s (Candide, Metamorphosis) adaptation delivers whimsy, delight, and a combination of comedy, adventure, and satire mixed with a mystical dreamscape filled with puppetry and lyrical beauty. For everyone who enjoyed our holiday staple, Arabian Nights, Journey to the West promises to be a comic adventure for all ages celebrating the vitality of human perseverance.
