As insect-related troubles go, flies appear far lower down on most New Yorkers lists than bed bus, roaches, or those scary spiders. But it’s the musca domestica that a child does battle with in this adaptation of the Brothers Grimm story, the Axis Theater’s annual holiday fare. After a plucky youth swats seven flies, he commences a series of adventures. Some feature Debbie Harry.
