The Green Bird is directed by Scott Cole, associate professor of theater at Bridgewater College. This production is produced by special arrangement with ICM Partners.
Written in the 18th century by Italian playwright Carlo Gozzi and translated by Albert Bermel and Ted Emery, The Green Bird is an enchanting work of commedia dell’arte. Mistaken identities, singing apples, dancing waters, talking statues, a mysterious green bird and a fairy-tale setting frame this ultimately romantic story about the search for true love.
