BENGAL TIGER

AT THE BAGHDAD ZOO

"What if my every meal has been an act of cruelty? What if my very nature is in direct conflict with the moral code of the universe?”

BENGAL TIGER AT THE BAGHDAD ZOO Oscar and Emmy Award winner Robin Williams makes his Broadway debut in the New York premiere of Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo. In Rajiv Jospeh’s savagely funny and deeply affecting play, a tiger haunts the streets of present day Baghdad seeking the meaning of life. As he witnesses the puzzling absurdities of war, the tiger encounters Americans and Iraqis who are searching for friendship, redemption and a toilet seat made of gold.

 

The New York Times says, “This boldly imagined, harrowing and surprisingly funny drama is wonderfully daring.” A finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, this groundbreaking play comes to Broadway for a strictly limited, sixteen week engagement directed by Tony Award nominee Moises Kaufman.
