What the critics are saying about Metamorphoses:

Diving In With Metamorphoses -The Washington Post
"The great thing is, we're still so in love with this play that any fears or frustrations that come up are overwhelmed by our enthusiasm about the project," Stockman says. "And that's not always the case. Sometimes there are lulls during the technical process where you think, 'I just can't wait to get out of here.' But this show is so special that I feel like it really reminds us of the things we love most about the theater."

“Constellation Theatre Company’s phenomenal production of Mary Zimmerman’s  Metamorphoses is a gift from the gods…. that will keep you on the edge of your seat in wonder and awe… if you see no other show in DC this month, this is the one.” - DC Metro Theater Arts

Constellation’s production holds the power of transformation, combining emotion and laughter in a dazzling spectacle that illuminates the persistent truths of ancient myths.
-DC Theatre Scene

“Constellation Theatre Company’s Metamorphoses is flat-out brilliant, knock-your-socks-off theater, from script to setting to lights and costumes to actors who speak and move with perfection….  The entire physical production is stunningly beautiful… Metamorphoses is a show that you should go out of your way to see”
- ShowBizRadio 

“Constellation shows tend to captivate, and this performance is no different. The chameleon cast navigates the dramatic waters--literal and otherwise--masterfully. All ten actors take on several roles, among them King Midas, Pandora, Bacchus, and Narcissus, each showcasing formidable talent and range.
- The Washingtonian

“Since its founding in 2007, Constellation has made a name presenting epic stories with sharp acting ensembles, smart lighting and elaborate set designs by Guban, fantastical costumes by Rai and often live, transporting original music by Tom Teasley.
- Metro Weekly

“The audacious Constellation Theatre has just installed a 4,000-gallon basin in the small black box theater of Source as the set for Mary Zimmerman's adaptation of Ovid's mythical vignettes, ‘Metamorphoses.’”
- The Washington Post

“A.J. Guban’s set immediately transports you out of time and into a classical dream world. Surrounded by blue wave-rippled walls, a trapezoid-shaped pool serves as the roiling sea, the river Styx, a taboo bedchamber, a rich man’s expensive plaything, and a puddle of tears…. The pool also provides many magical moments, as the cast appears and disappears beneath the water’s surface, often rising up again greatly altered. This simple bit of stagecraft delights, and makes you believe that perhaps the gods and goddesses are really at work. Other pleasures are aural in nature, supplied by Tom Teasley’s evocative music.”
- DC Theatre Scene

"Constellation’s production of Metamorphoses is one of the most unusual and thoughtful theater pieces we’ve seen this season. It’s a genuine literary and musical think piece whose unusual poolside setting actually helps transmit the message rather than detracting from it." - The Washington Times
