How does a director and adaptor of literature for the stage solve the problems of staging sea battles and monsters, flying and transfigurations? Mary Zimmerman demonstrates how imaginative imagery – a kind of visual poetry – is deployed to create all manner of the fantastical on stage. A recipient of numerous creative awards, including a Tony Award for Best Direction (2002) and the prestigious John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Fellowship (1998), she is an ensemble member of the Lookingglass Theatre Company, the Manilow Resident Director at the Goodman Theatre, and a faculty member in the Performance Studies department at Northwestern University.
