Whatever the reason, when Matthew Bourne — best known in the U.S. for choreographing the all-male “Swan Lake” — visits cities in England with his “Lord of the Flies” production, hundreds of local lads swarm to auditions, wanting to be part of it. It’s a little less genteel than “Nutcracker” don’t ya know. “Flies” may buzz over to the U.S. soon.
