A most unconventional 'Dollhouse'
Mabou mines takes Ibsen classic to new heights
Hits sometimes emerge in unexpected places. For Lee Breuer, eight years ago, such a show was his take on Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House.’’ Breuer’s production, from a script he adapted with Maude Mitchell, upends the play’s gender dynamics by casting women of normal height opposite men no taller than 4-1/2 feet. Its ending is opera buffa, with puppets. A cofounder of the experimental New York theater collective Mabou Mines, Breuer brings “Mabou Mines DollHouse’’ to the Cutler Majestic Theatre on Tuesday.
