One Thousand Nights and One Day


Prospect West: April 3 – 29, 2018
ONE THOUSAND NIGHTS AND ONE DAY
at the new ART/NY Mezzanine Theatre

book and lyrics by JASON GROTE
music by MARISA MICHELSON
based on the play 1001 by Jason Grote

This kaleidoscopic reinvention of “The Arabian Nights” wraps stories within stories, deconstructing and examining narrative, the Middle East, and identity through a 21st-century lens: the love story of a Jewish man and Palestinian woman in New York City.

directed by ERIN ORTMAN

“People and their passions fly off the page in Jason Grote’s dynamic, intellectually agile 1001,
a postmodern epic about the cultural narratives that shape our lives.”
~ Time Out New York, Five Out of Five Stars, One of the Year’s 10 Best New Plays (2007)

“Michelson’s challenging and tonally complex music is some of the most unique and beautiful
I’ve heard in musical theater.” – Theatermania, on Tamar of the River

at the new ART/NY Mezzanine Theatre (502 West 53rd St., NYC)
