Don't Shoot the Albatross is sort of a monologue, kind of a pop song, and a bit like a poem. It's about urban isolation, queer exceptionalism and social anxiety, but mostly it's about Alby and why they can't sleep at night. The piece flickers between poetic, musical and acerbic.

BWW Review: LOOKINGGLASS ALICE at Lookingglass Theatre Company

Lookingglass Theatre Company’s signature LOOKINGGLASS ALICE has returned to Water Tower Water Works—and it’s just as whimsical and delightful as I remember it when I first saw the production back in high school. Director David Catlin’s charming and inventive adaptation combines storytelling elements from Lewis Carroll’s ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND and THROUGH THE LOOKINGGLASS. The production’s partnership with The Actors Gymnasium has also cemented Lookingglass Theatre Company’s 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.
