Insipid, Poor direction, Banal, Bad writing, Terrible score

See it if you like new musicals for the sake of new musicals. Great concept yields little. Uneven cast makes the poor material barely tolerable.

Don't see it if you're expecting anything profound or insightful. It's shallow vapid and the music is painfully generic. Not worth the trip to LIC.

Quirky, Great singing, Great acting, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you enjoy being a semi-part of the show or want to see a creative take on the art world through the lens of Alice in Wonderland.

Don't see it if you want a big-budget show, aren't okay with LGBT relationships, or want to see something lighthearted and family-friendly.

Indulgent, Hilarious, Great singing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you enjoy a fun musical reworking of Alice in Wonderful with great cast of hard working actors singing some memorable tunes.

Don't see it if you're not a fan of non traditional experimental theater with LGBT elements but still with some cool songs and funny dialog.

Entertaining, Funny, Clever

See it if You enjoy reimaginings with a unique perspective. The show is loosely structured around Alice In Wonderland with original music/book

Don't see it if Low production value performed in a gallery space not a theater. Sound and lighting suffer because of this making some things distracting.

Great singing, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you like original musicals, and a few songs that are hummable. And you like to find a theater space wayyy in the back of an LIC gallery.

Don't see it if You don't care for original musicals, or walking wayyyy in the back of an LIC warehouse/art gallery to find the show.

"The concept is nifty...What begins as the progressive story of a young woman's career as a painter surprisingly devolves into typical romcom trappings…You may not leave the theatre with any more meaningful revelations than Alice had, but chances are you'll have had a pretty good time."
