Lewis Carroll’s spectacularly surreal classic is brought vividly to life in the wildly imaginative Lookingglass Alice. Combining witty word play, madcap mischief and fantastical flights of aerial fancy, Alice begins with a booming thunderclap that sets Wonderland’s ingenious instruments of invention into motion. The entire theater becomes her stage, as Alice floats and flies across a chessboard of “curioser and curioser” characters — a juggling Mad Hatter, acrobatic hedgehogs, a unicycle-riding White Knight and a host of others — that appear from above, below and everywhere in between. Mixing physical theater and circus arts, “this trip down the rabbit hole is nothing short of brillig!” (Chicago Sun-Times)
