Theatre: Metamorphosis

Date: 10 September 2014 - 20 September 2014, Venue: Woolly Mammoth Theatre

From September 10–21, the Alliance for New Music-Theatre will perform Kafka’s most influential and popular work – METAMORPHOSIS – to bring to the stage both the darkness and the humor of Kafka as the quintessential Outsider’s Outsider.

In Kafka’s seminal story, salesman Gregor Samsa wakes up to discover that he has been transformed into a monstrous insect. Kafka’s works surpassed all literary conventions and social boundaries, tapping into a universal expression of modern man’s alienation and angst. Metamorphosis, directed by Susan Galbraith, who has further adapted Steven Berkoff’s dramatization into a music-theatre vehicle features original music and projected animations to enrich the performance.

Opening Night: September 10, 8 pm. Show runs from Sept. 10-21.

Tickets will be available through the Alliance for New music-Theatre's website www.newmusictheatre.org.
