Alice is a new musical written and directed by Andrew Barbato. Based on the books Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Alice through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll. This new adaptation by Andrew Barbato and Lesley DeSantis, offers a fresh musical perspective on the satirical vignettes drawn up by Lewis Carroll and sends us on a fantastical coming of age adventure. Alice, relying on her wit and empathy, must negotiate the seemingly arbitrary rules of polite society; the tea parties, the poetry recitals, the croquet matches, and the very important dates with very important people. In this distorted adult world of Wonderland, will Alice retain her childhood dreams when pressured by the capricious nature of conformity? Join us for the professional premiere of this new work!
