MAPA’s ‘Theophilus North’ explores regions of the heart in lovely, moving production

Maui Academy of Performing Arts brought "Theophilus North," a play by Matthew Burnett based on the novel by Thornton Wilder, to Steppingstone Playhouse last weekend. The play was a refreshing, intellectual romp through the streets and houses of Newport, R.I., and the intimate lives of the people who lived there. Unexpected, multifaceted and rich, the show was a pure delight for the eye, head and heart. The actors glided between places and characters; rooms materialized out of old, repurposed objects; and the backdrop of used props and costume pieces grew and expanded with each scene in an effortless, whimsical flow.
