ArtsEmerson: The World on Stage presents Metamorphosis. Kafka’s terrifying but bizarrely comic story bursts onto the stage in this theatrically explosive new version. Fantastic and horrific, surprisingly funny and poignant, the ordinary, unremarkable life of the Samsa family turns upside down when their son, Gregor, emerges one morning to find himself inexplicably transformed into a gigantic bug. Hugely acclaimed production directed and adapted by Gisli Örn Gardarsson and David Farr.

Created by ArtsEmerson

There’s no insect costume, no expensive special effects à la “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.” But the Vesturport Theatre-Lyric Hammersmith coproduction of Franz Kafka’s “Metamorphosis,” beginning performances Wednesday on the Paramount Center Mainstage, manages to be off the wall nonetheless.
