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