A theatrical take on the biblical Tower of Babel

  • Aug 16, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Jun 13, 2008 at 10:00AM

According to the Bible, the Tower of Babel was built to reach heaven. Angered by the builder’s presumptuous audacity, God prevents the tower’s completion by fragmenting humankind’s single language into many. With the workforce unable to communicate, the tower is abandoned in confusion. Interestingly, it is not only the Judeo-Christians who have an account of a massive tower built to reach the heavens in their holy doctrines. The Greeks, Muslims, Sumerians, and central-Americans have similar stories. How does this relate to MaraGold Theatre, you may ask? Well, opening March 1, MaraGold will be adding this story to its modest cannon with five upcoming performances of John Lazarus’s comedic play Babel Rap.
