Led by Michael Levinton, the Little Lord theater company, a self-described “rough and ready collective of shiksas, queers, and misinformed Jews,” joyously tackle the biblical Book of Esther with cheesy prom dresses, dollar-store props, and an interactive children’s theater style that schools with whiskey shots.
