Lookingglass Alice Member Picks The Short List (Theater) Recommended Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Sept. 12 2010

Lauren Hirte's Alice flies, spins, and leaps through the stages of growing up in this acrobatic conflation of two classic fantasies by Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Lookingglass Theatre's latest iteration--the fourth since the show debuted in 2005--demands audience participation as the cast creeps through aisles, climbs into seats, and soars to dizzying heights. Molly Brennan is both playful and terrifying as a ceiling-high Red Queen with a penchant for decapitation. From an unbalanced Humpty Dumpty to the tangoing Tweedles, Dee and Dum, Lookingglass Alice is intoxicating. --Marissa Oberlander

Price: $32-$36
