Comedy. Romance. Poetry. Whimsy. Tales of Midas, Orpheus, Aphrodite and more swirl with passion in a funny, whimsical and heartbreaking meditation on the joys and perils of being human. A charming re-envisioning of ancient Greek myths for a modern audience, Metamorphoses is set entirely in and around an on-stage swimming pool (front row patrons: beware of errant splashing!). The play’s locations, like the characters, are constantly shifting and transforming—from a swimming pool, to a wash basin, to the River Styx, to the sea. Gods and mortals alike endure love, loss, and transformation—all while immersed in a pool of water. May 8 – June 5; A Noise Within, 3352 E Foothill Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91107; Tickets start at $25; Student tickets start at $18; (626) 353-3100; www.anoisewithin.org

The production of Mary Zimmerman’s lauded adaptation, directed by Julia Rodriguez-Elliott, captures and encapsulates a sense of the sprawling structure of Ovid’s original work, and more significantly encases it in a sense of relevance and modernity.

This play was cleverly put together with an interesting amount of modernism and humor, and it lets these timeless stories be told without getting in the way. 8.3 out of 10 - A Good Show! LA Theatre Bites Recommended
