Winging It

Play on Birds spoofs on ornithology; Export Quality flies to the sweatshops of the Philippines

A labored premise? Theater Mu's sweatshop drama Export Quality
A labored premise? Theater Mu's sweatshop drama Export Quality

Despite the essential absurdity of the story, the production has a sort of giddy, high spirit, thanks in no small part to the uptempo direction of Rick Shiomi. For example, Shiomi sets one energetic scene in a discotheque. Amid strobing lights and Ricky Martin songs, actor Allen Malicsi gyrates like a dervish in a prolonged and hilarious dance that has the audience sympathetically gasping for air at its end. This sort of deliberate burst of ridiculousness is always entertaining; it is the accidental absurdities of a play that are so frustrating.
