Rajiv Joseph’s BENGAL TIGER AT THE BAGHDAD ZOO opened on Broadway in March 2011, directed by Moises Kaufman and starring Robin Williams as the Tiger. The play was subsequently nominated for the 2011 Pulitzer Prize in Drama. As this is a regional premiere, scripts are not yet readily available to the general public. For information on how to acquire a perusal script and for an appointment, contact the director.
