Critic’s Picks: “Metamorphoses” at UPS, Seattle Symphony’s “Celebrate Asia,” workshop at Tacoma Art Museum and trombonist Wycliffe Gordon

Metamorphoses at UPS

You don’t have to have studied Latin to appreciate “Metamorphoses.” The play by Mary Zimmerman, based on Ovid’s writings of ancient Roman myths, hinges on an eternal truth – that nothing is permanent, including love, lust, riches and power. Some tales are familiar, like King Midas or Orpheus and Euridyce, now given a modern spin. Theater arts students at the University of Puget Sound open their production of the play tonight, directed by John Rindo. 7:30 p.m. tonight, then Feb. 25, March 2 and 3. 4 p.m. March 1, 2 p.m. March 3. $11/$7. Norton Clapp Theater, Jones Hall, UPS, 1500 N. Warner St., Tacoma. 253-879-3419, tickets.pugetsound.edu
