The Lily's Revenge
October 12 - October 28, 2012
An unforgettable allegory for love without boundaries, The Lily's Revenge is a collaborative community gathering and multidisciplinary extravaganza that weds dance, film, theater, and music into five unique acts with an ensemble of over thirty performers. The show aims to dismantle established societal rules, traditions and myths; and then, while celebrating the pieces it had pulled apart, rearranges them into the foundation of a new myth with the purpose of inspiring humanity in the here and now.
“The Lily’s Revenge offers so many incidental pleasures that theatrical time — always a curiously malleable element — seems to contract. To my happy surprise, I emerged from The Lily’s Revenge more refreshed than exhausted.’” – Charles Isherwood (The New York Times)
“This play is not vying for polished immortality; it is living in its moment, which happens also to be ours. Mac’s achievement is as ephemeral as a bloom. See it before it fades into nostalgia itself. You are sure to forget it not.” -Adam Feldman (Time Out New York)
