The New York Times
November 30th, 2012

"For much of the hazy two hours I spent wandering through rooms there, I felt like a bewildered but enchanted child, made privy to the arcana of another, darker world...What you will experience is the feeling that children sometimes have of being swept up into busy, self-important social rituals that make no sense. And of spying on adult activities that don’t make much sense either and are equally creepy and thrilling."

"A lush, if fragmented story arrives by way of exacting, exuberant choreography. A labyrinthine journey through shadowy corridors and meticulously decorated rooms, it exposes the sinister undertones of these childhood tales, while grappling with the more adult complexities of Carroll’s attraction to his prepubescent muse, Alice Liddell."

Time Out New York

"The experiences that director-designer-mastermind Zach Morris and his company offer are stunningly personal, like when you peep in on the Red Queen having a private breakdown, she catches you watching through the two-way mirror. And then, just as you’ve become curiouser and curiouser, it all ends too soon."

New Yorker

"Third Rail Projects recently moved its wildly imaginative multimedia theatre-dance piece from a single-level hospital to a creaky three-story school building, now dressed to be a mental ward in Wonderland. Lucky theatregoers get to join the tea party, where chocolate is served and spoons fly."

New York Post

"You’ll discover what it feels like to disappear down a rabbit hole at the fiendishly clever immersive theater piece inspired by the life and writings of Lewis Carroll. The performers inhabit their roles with an almost uncomfortable intensity, giving you the sense that you’ve only just happened to wander into their spooky playground."

Theatre is Easy
August 5th, 2014

"Not infrequently you will find yourself in a room alone, exploring nooks and crannies, gazing into mirrors and windows, and finding your own thoughts and feelings creep into the mix. The next moment, you’re dealing one on one with a character from this disorienting world on the cusp of reality and dreams. It’s startlingly personal without ever feeling invasive...This is Alice in the land of Freud."

Front Mezz Junkies
January 16th, 2018

"A fascinating and unique experience...Using letter dictation, wonderful mirror play, and a lot of dance and movement, the sly details and suspicions are parceled out...The movement is powerful while giving a great insight to the parallels and layers between real people and imaginary characters. Sometimes the creations begin to feel repetitive and not overly thought-expanding, although they all are dreamy and visually appealing...Wistful, elegant, and passively romantic."

New York Theater

"Over the course of the two-hour running time of this elusive, dark and delightful show, each individual theatergoer feels put in charge of unlocking the mysteries not just of what’s in front of us, but also of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson – pen name, Lewis Carroll…For all the atmosphere of mystery, the show offers light bulb moments of great satisfaction.
