Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo - 2011 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

$74.75 - $134.75

Oscar® and Emmy® Award winner Robin Williams makes his Broadway debut in the New York premiere of BENGAL TIGER AT THE BAGHDAD ZOO.



In Rajiv Joseph's new American play, a tiger haunts the streets of present day Baghdad seeking the meaning of life. As he witnesses the puzzling absurdities of war, the tiger encounters Americans and Iraqis who are searching for friendship, redemption and a toilet seat made of gold.



The New York Times says, "This boldly imagined, harrowing and surprisingly funny drama is wonderfully daring." A finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, this groundbreaking play comes to Broadway for a strictly limited, sixteen-week engagement directed by Tony Award® nominee Moisés Kaufman.



The cast also features Glenn Davis, Brad Fleischer, Hrach Titizian, Sheila Vand, Necar Zadegan and Arian Moayed, with Hend Ayoub, Corey Brill, Daoud Heidami and Sherman Howard.

Featured Reviews For Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo


Catty Robin Williams Prowls, Bites Hand in 'Bengal Tiger' - Bloomberg News
Moises Kaufman has staged the play with considerable restraint (despite the fact that the male actors tend, incomprehensibly, to be yelling much of the time). David Lander’s pinpoint lighting throws the players and Derek McLane’s minimalist settings into chiaroscuro tableaux vivants of light and dark, most appropriately.

Robin Williams haunts 'Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo' on Broadway - New Jersey Newsroom
Depicting the philosophical tiger with grim humor, a gruff-voiced, soulful Williams submerges his bravura skills into the ensemble work of his fellow actors. Respectively playing the conflicted translator and increasingly cerebral Marine, Moayed and Fleischer unerringly chart their characters' evolutions. Titizian suavely portrays the amoral Uday's ghost - who totes his dead brother's head in a plastic bag - with a jaunty ferocity that's scary.
