An exotic beast is stalking Broadway... Rajiv Joseph's smart, savagely funny and visionary new work of American theater, whose presence on Broadway invites fanciful comparison to the titular beast.

Charles Isherwood, New York Times

Why See Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo?

Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo is Rajiv Joseph's ferocious comedy that follows the intertwined lives of a tiger, portrayed by Robin Williams, two American marines and an Iraqi gardener as they roam the streets of Baghdad in search of 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 Moises Kaufman.
