A ‘DollHouse’ that alters our vision
Mabou Mines holds mirror up to Ibsen
There are few things more exhilarating than the work of a theatrical imagination operating at full throttle. That’s what is on display in “Mabou Mines DollHouse,’’ and that’s why you might briefly have the sensation of floating, rather than merely walking, as you leave the Cutler Majestic Theatre, where “DollHouse’’ is playing through Sunday. Directed by Lee Breuer and starring the astounding Maude Mitchell as Nora, “DollHouse’’ conjures an otherworldly aura by taking one of the most familiar settings in dramatic literature and transforming it into an actual dollhouse.
