Arabian Nights

Based on One Thousand and One Nights, the celebrated collection of Middle Eastern and South Asian folk tales, Arabian Nights brings the stories of clever Shahrazad to vivid life as she tricks the murderous king into postponing her execution. The production presents several of her many tales, such as "Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves" and "Sinbad the Sailor," the prequel to “Sinbad the Comedian.” Life-sized puppets and colorful costumes animate the more fantastical elements, as the performance blends together suspense, romance, comedy, and cast's sighs of relief at not having to perform all 1,001 nights.

This re-telling of the classic narrative about re-telling was penned by British playwright Dominic Cooke. Award-winning director Gabriel Barre oversees the production, drawing on the experience he gained on the national tours of Pippin and Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella to lead the dazzling production.

Theatre VCU

For nearly seven decades, Theatre VCU has worked toward two goals: to help create a new generation of theater artists and to ensure the tanks on their applause-powered generators stay full. Young performers, costumers, scenic and lighting designers, and stage managers all hone their crafts and nurture their talents with the theatre—and they manage to create some pretty great art along the way. Recent productions have included the R-rated puppet musical Avenue Q, Sarah Ruhl's Dead Man's Cell Phone, and George C. Wolfe's powerful classic The Colored Museum.
