Why Kingfisher?

Why Kingfisher

We believe that the creation of world-class theater requires stability and a calm space in order for new artistic life to flourish.

There’s a story in Greek mythology of Alcyone and Ceyx, lovers who offend Zeus and Hera by using the gods’ names in vain. They are banished to the sea, but their devotion to one another inspires the god to transform them into halcyon, or kingfisher, birds. According to legend, these birds nest peacefully in stormy seas.

The Kingfisher Theater is this safe haven.
