“…FUNNY, MOVING…Like Scheherazade’s tales, 1001 is ENDLESSLY COMPELLING”
–The Boston Globe
“EXPLOSIVE, often BRILLIANT work about America, narrative, the Middle East and identity.”
–Time Out NY
A seductive fever-dream of a play, Grote’s KALEIDOSCOPIC REINVENTION OF THE “ARABIAN NIGHTS” proves to be a timely tale as America reflects on the 10 year anniversary of 9/11. 1001’s RICH FANTASIA conjures a storybook world that dissolves, at a moment’s notice, into an apocalyptic, 21st-century landscape. Stories like ““Sinbad the Sailor” and “Aladdin and His Magic Lamp” making 1001 an EXPLOSIVE, BRILLIANT work about America, the power of story, and identity.
1001, a play by Jason Grote. Directed by Megan Sandberg-Zakian. Featuring Lauren Eicher, Hampton Fluker, Ruby Rose Fox, Ben Gracia, Lonnie McAdoo, and Nael Nacer.
