The Lily’s Revenge
by Taylor Mac
The Love Act, Erika Chong Shuch, director
Magic Theatre, 2011
You’re likely to laugh from beginning to end ... The physical action is pushed to the limits of X-rated antics and faux violence and the performances, by 30-plus local singers, dancers, musicians and actors—all in service of the unwieldy and grotesque tale of Lily and his longed-for bride—are uniformly excellent ... a wildly entertaining meditation on the deepest of human desires.
—Jean Schiffman, San Francisco Examiner
Presented at the Magic Theater, San Francisco, California
The Lily’s Revenge was a rolling world premiere with Magic Theatre, HERE Arts Center (New York), Southern Rep Theatre (New Orleans) and The National Theatre of Scotland.
