There are two separate and unequal parts to this production by the Mill. The first is a brief but thoroughly delicious burlesque show performed with tongue-in-cheek brio by five women in their skivvies. After a brief interlude comes Paula Vogel’s bawdy reimagining of Othello from the point of view of Desdemona, who turns out to be anything but the sweet and innocent creature of Shakespeare’s play. Jaclyn Biskup stages both parts with gusto, but the opening act far outshines the headliner. (ZT)
