Seeking community in Taylor Mac’s ‘The Lily’s Revenge’ at the ART
The performers in T-shirts and sweats in the drab basement rehearsal space off Harvard Square could be limbering up for any show. It’s only when you eye the costume drawings lining one wall that you realize something unusual is afoot. Giant flowers, Day-Glo colors, outrageous patterns — it’s Dr. Seuss meets Studio 54, a fabulous hothouse. This is the American Repertory Theater production of “The Lily’s Revenge,” Taylor Mac’s wild fantasia about a flower who wants to take a human bride.
