Photo Flash: First Look at Mary Zimmerman's THE WHITE SNAKE

May 12
4:23 PM 2014

Written and Directed by Mary Zimmerman, and based on the Classic Chinese Fable, the Chicago Premiere of THE WHITE SNAKE is presented May 3 - June 8, 2014 in the Albert. Check out a first look below!

The White Snake chronicles the tale of a gentle serpent spirit who lives for centuries coiled on a mountaintop. One day, she transforms herself into a beautiful young woman and, with her feisty companion Green Snake, travels down to the world of humans. There, she unexpectedly finds love, happiness and family, and vows to remain a human forever. But when a vengeful monk discovers her true identity, he becomes determined to destroy the life that she's built-and break apart her marriage to her one true love. Funny, moving and stunningly staged, The White Snake is a ravishing theatrical spectacle that will enchant and delight.
