Romantic, Intense, Heartbreaking, Edgy, Zany

See it if Lively cast captures the zaniness of Lewis Carroll's characters, and the inspiring but heartbreaking relationship between LC and Alice.

Don't see it if You wouldn't enjoy a biographically based play that explores the blurry area between fantasy and reality, between adult and child.

Ambitious, Clever, Edgy, Refreshing

See it if You like 'experimental' theater that challenges you to put the pieces/story together. You are a big Alice in Wonderland fan.

Don't see it if You like your plays linear and to the point as opposed to 'wandering' - with the audience left to put the story line together.
