Pulitzer Prize finalist Rajiv Joseph's Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo opened at Los Angeles' Mark Taper Forum April 25.
In the work, according to CTG notes, "the lives and, in some cases, the afterlives, of two American soldiers, an Iraqi translator, the ghosts of Saddam Hussein's sons Uday and Ousay, and a Bengal tiger all intersect in a surreal, darkly humorous and gently balanced view of war and its aftermath." Moisés Kaufman directs a cast featuring Glenn Davis, Brad Fleischer, Arian Moayed, Kevin Tighe, Hrach Titizian, Sheila Vand and Necar Zadegan.
Here is a look at the starry opening night celebration:
