A Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo on Broadway
In Rajiv Joseph's new American 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 Moisés Kaufman.
The cast also features Glenn Davis, Brad Fleischer, Hrach Titizian, Sheila Vand, Necar Zadegan and Arian Moayed, with Hend Ayoub, Corey Brill, Daoud Heidami and Sherman Howard.

A BENGAL TIGER AT THE BAGHDAD ZOO review
A Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo is currently playing at the following Broadway Theatre:
A pair of U.S. soldiers, an Iraqi, and a tiger collide on the streets of Baghdad in this darkly humorous, thoughtful, and poignant new play set against the backdrop of the Iraq War.
Moises Kaufman (Direction)
Rajiv Joseph (Playwright)
Summary An Iraqi, a couple of U.S. soldiers, and a tiger all come into contact on the dangerous streets of Baghdad in Rajiv Joseph's new drama set in 2003 during the Iraq War.
Age Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
Our Recommendation Robin Williams is the headliner for this production, and he is very good playing the tiger of the title as it ruminates on metaphysical questions in war-torn Baghdad (don't worry, he doesn't wear a costume - the play leaves that to your imagination). But the actual star of the show is the excellent, Tony-nominated Arian Moayed, playing the drama's most well-rounded character, an Iraqi gardener who has been brought on as an interpreter for U.S. forces and is haunted by thoughts of one-time employer Uday Hussein. Playwright Rajiv Joseph is less successful in his creation of two U.S. soldier characters, who seem like caricatures of hot-headed young men. Overall, Joseph has created a drama with a strong premise, an intriguing assortment of characters, and some interesting observations. His writing doesn't quite live up to the promise of the play's concept, but he is definitely a young playwright to watch.
