‘Lesser’ is more in rollicking MAPA world premiere

April 12, 2012

My favorite thing in theater is a brand-new show. There's something exciting about being a part of the first few who get to witness new material. "Lesser Ahi," created by Derek Nakagawa and Francis Tau'a, is the brainchild of director David Johnson. He had seen ProArts' "Greater Tuna" last year, came up with the title and asked Nakagawa and Tau'a to write the tale with a local flavor. "Tuna" and "Ahi" both take place in a small community where two actors play all the characters, but that is where the similarities end. I sat down last week with Johnston, "the cast" and crew of "Ahi," who shared their process with me.
