Lookingglass Alice

Publication: Chicago Parent
Published: June 28, 2007
Client: Lookingglass Theatre

By Kate Pancero

Lookingglass Alice" is back in Chicago, and I think tickets will go fast. Artistic Director David Catlin's high-octane adaptation of Lewis Carroll's familiar stories will surprise and astound audiences of all ages. A 90-minute "circus arts" production with no intermission, the show's energy keeps building, getting "curious and curiouser," as my 11-year-old remarked.

Alice journeys across the stage on giant chess squares, meeting Carroll's famous characters, which burst on the scene with a sometimes manic attitude. The Cheshire cat introduces himself with a huge growling "ME – OW!" Often, the action is interjected with loud crashes and white lights and bright moments of humor. For example, when Alice ponders the "Drink Me" bottle, a disembodied voice urges, "C'mon … c'mon."
