Mary Zimmerman?s unique style of theatre thrilled Berkeley Rep audiences with Metamorphoses and Journey to the West. She returns to open our 03/04 Season with a production that offers a window into one of history?s most original and imaginative minds. Leonardo da Vinci?s notebooks are a record of his ideas on far-ranging topics from mathematics, anatomy, architecture and engineering, to philosophy, love and the human spirit. Zimmerman, whose own vivid imagination, tongue-in-cheek humor and theatrical vision have earned her a MacArthur ?genius? grant and a coveted Tony Award, creates a beautiful, beguiling and brilliant canvas on which the mind of Leonardo is illuminated.
