Best Theatrical Gimmick

Metamorphoses

Staff Pick

Georgia Shakespeare has never shown fear of elaborate “concept” productions, like its “Huey Long” version of Julius Caesar set in New Orleans, or its Wild West As You Like It. Nothing in the company’s creative history, however, can match the audacity or complexity of the 24-foot, 3,300-gallon swimming pool that provides the primary performing space (as well as a myriad of thematic metaphors) in Richard Garner’s exquisite production of Ovid’s METAMORPHOSES this summer. Plus, the lucky timing of staging a play with a swimming pool during a heat wave suggests that the gods were smiling on Georgia Shakespeare.
