The Arabian Nights continues through April at the new Post5 Black Box Theatre inside Milepost5, 850 NE Oregon St.

In this eternal tale, (this version written by Mary Zimmerman and directed by Philip Cuomo) Scheherezade tells stories to her new husband, the suspicious King Shahryar, each night in order to save her life.

Aided in her endeavors by her little sister and a strong supporting ensemble, she eagerly tells her tales of human frailty and the strength of will.

Performances are Friday-Sunday at 7 pm and Milepost5 is 4 blocks South of the Red, Blue, and Green MAX Lines.

Tickets are $10 Friday/Saturday “Pay What You Can” Sunday. Tickets available at postfivetheatre.org .
