"An unforgettable allegory for love without boundaries," The Lily's Revenge, according to press notes, 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 production will also feature music supervision by Martin Lowe, movement direction by Jill Johnson and Yo-El Cassell, set design by Sara Brown, costume design by Sarah Cubbage, lighting design by Jeff Adelberg and sound design by Clive Goodwin.
