Six Impossible Things Closing (Theater and Galleries) Recommended The Short List (Theater)

When: Saturdays, Sundays. Continues through March 8 2009

An energetic, entertaining cast zips through Peter Pan, The Wizard of Oz, and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland at the pace of a TV commercial. In less than an hour we're introduced to the heroines of all three books, get the gist of their adventures, and meet a handful of oddballs they encounter along the way. Scads of details have been cut for this adaptation, conceived by director Julie Ritchey and created by the Filament Theatre Ensemble. The Wicked Witch of the West doesn't even appear in their retelling of The Wizard of Oz. Still, the four actors perform with so much gusto, and their storytelling is so strong and clear, they easily win over adults and children alike while offering bite-size tastes of these rich classics. --Jack Helbig
