Down the Rabbit Hole

Innovative work by Stranger Theatre

And What Alice Found There is weird and wonderful. It combines a smidgen biography (of Charles Dodgson --AKA Lewis Carroll--and his muse Alice Liddell), with a dash of Victorian social history (from photography to imperialism), and mixes them with physical theatre, puppetry and video components. The end result is wildly original and very entertaining. Alice is played by three actors (Simone Rosenberg, Christina Serra and Sarah Cormier) who don the blonde Alice hair at different points in the play. Each brings a different flavor to their Alice, and the physical passing of the wig is always amusing. Their singing voices blend beautifully, and their exuberant physicality is perfect for the scenes set in Wonderland. A minor technical glitch was the only sour note in the tightly choreographed and beautifully executed play.
