McGuire Proscenium Stage
written and directed by Mary Zimmerman
based on the classic Chinese fable
With this dazzling new production, Tony Award-winning director Mary Zimmerman brings to life an ancient Chinese fable about friendship and the power of unconditional love. The White Snake
chronicles the tale of a gentle serpent spirit who lives for centuries coiled on a mountaintop. One day, White Snake transforms herself into a beautiful young woman and, with her feisty companion Green Snake, travels down to the world of mortals where she falls in love with a man and vows to be with him forever.
