A rock-and-roll kids' musical about life and love among the insects in a trash heap, the frisky U:Bug:Me presented a costuming challenge: how to make actors into pests without making audiences want to swat. Designer Megan Turek found good taste in the bad — and inspiration in the trash. She outfitted her aphids and horseflies in well-chosen castoffs, ragamuffin sportswear and Hawaiian shirts, and then accessorized them with human junk: goggles suggesting bug eyes; tubing and backpacks evoking wings; jackets made for carapaces. In short, Turek dreamed up bugs from the stuff that kids in the audience might find lying around the house. Like all of the Coterie Theatre's best inventions, Turek's costumes invited the crowd to dream along.
