Mystical Transformations

Ziggy Stardust, three tiers of angels, the performance artist Marina Abramović, and a healing figure glimpsed somewhere on the horizon combine in Mystical Transformations. This original play with music dramatizes a visit to a Renaissance Fair and a Lake Michigan beach by two multi-ethnic Chicago families touched by death and mental instability. The blandness and challenge of everyday life seen in the play’s first half give way to the fantasy world of the Fair and a little girl’s hopeful innocence, and finally enough hope and light to face the journey ahead.
