When Mary Zimmerman was announced to direct/adapt Disney's The Jungle Book, I was surprised. I never thought the production would materialize (Pinocchio, anyone?), but knew that if it did, I'd have to see it.

Quick: would you rather pay $115 (or $303 to a ticket broker) to see the misbegotten offspring of Walt Disney and Mary Zimmerman, or pay nothing whatsoever to see a powerhouse re-interpretation of Clifford Odets's Depression-era howl of protest?

I hope this Metamorphoses comes back to New York, but, if it doesn't, I am happy audiences can see it now at Arena.

Brought together through Mary Zimmerman's unique perspective, White Snake is one more exhibition of a visionary's genius. Zimmerman doesn't simply fashion engrossing plays; she creates theatrical magic.

What occurs to me about the booing is that it might begin to color attitudes towards the Met under Peter Gelb for whom this 2009-10 season is the first with no vestigial ties to Joseph Volpe.
