A cycle of thirteen episodes told in Story Theater form, a narrator speaking and life-sized puppets performing simultaneously, Metamorphoses tells the stories from Greek mythologyOCofrom the first moments of creation to its version of the flood, and the trials, tribulations, and joys during ZeusOCOs long reign. It brings to life some of the most memorable episodes and characters in that saga: the Titans, the Cyclops, Zeus himself, Echo and Narcissus, Cupid and Psyche, Theseus, Orpheus and Eurydice, and many, many more. This version of the stories by playwright Leon Katz is based on the Roman poet OvidOCOs epic poem, Metamorphoses, the most popular and witty retelling of the tales in Western literature. Metamorphoses have an impressive track record. It ran for ten years in the Vagabond Puppets CompanyOCOs production and, during that time, toured throughout the U.S. Its appeal has been strong with both young audiences and adults alike and was seen by thousands of theatergoers. Boson Books also offers Midnight Plays by Leon Katz. For an author bio and photo visit bosonbooks.com."
