Enter the ancient, mystical dreamscape of Journey to the West, an epic stage adaptation of the Chinese legend of a Buddhist monk who must travel from China to India in search of sacred scriptures. The intrepid hero Tripitaka is joined on his quest by a rambunctious monkey, an insatiable pig and a fearsome river monster, brought to life through Constellation Theatre's dynamic interplay of movement, live music and passionate acting. Full of grand spectacle, thrilling action sequences and even vaudeville comedy, Journey to the West by Tony-winner Mary Zimmerman (Metamorphoses) brings grand adventure to DC's Source black box.
The running time is two hours, 45 minutes, including one intermission.
This production is recommended for ages 13 and up.
