Enter ancient Persia, and be transformed by the power of storytelling – again! The Nora Theatre Company and Underground Railway Theater revive their award-winning production of Dominic Cooke’s ARABIAN NIGHTS (dir. Daniel Gidron). Based on One Thousand and One Nights, a collection of folk tales from the Middle East and Asia, ARABIAN NIGHTS is rich with suspense, romance, and hilarity – stories irresistible for all ages. At its heart is the power of the imagination to heal, inspire, and transform.
