Prepare to believe the unbelievable. Winner of five Olivier Awards including Best New Play, Life of Pi roars onto Broadway this spring in an epic tale of endurance and hope. After a cargo ship sinks in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, a sixteen-year-old boy named Pi is left stranded on a lifeboat with the most unlikely of companions: a Royal Bengal tiger. With time and nature against them, the two must learn to trust one another if they are to survive. Based on one of our most beloved works of fiction, Life of Pi will “make you believe in the power of theater” (The Times of London).
