by Rachel Weinberg - May 31, 2022

Lookingglass Theatre Company‚Äôs signature LOOKINGGLASS ALICE has returned to Water Tower Water Works‚ÄĒand it‚Äôs just as whimsical and delightful as I remember it when I first saw the production back in high school. Director David Catlin‚Äôs charming and inventive adaptation combines storytelling elements from Lewis Carroll‚Äôs ALICE‚ÄôS ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND and THROUGH THE LOOKINGGLASS. The production‚Äôs partnership with The Actors Gymnasium has also cemented Lookingglass Theatre Company‚Äôs unique combination of literary adaptation and impressive aerial artistry. LOOKINGGLASS ALICE not only calls for a talented company of actors but also places considerable physical demands upon its ensemble.
