BWW Review: LOVE LETTERS at Des Moines Playhouse: A Welcome Journey Photo BWW Review: LOVE LETTERS at Des Moines Playhouse: A Welcome Journey
by DC Felton - Jun 12, 2020

'Lobster Alice' follows Alice Horowitz, a coffee-bearing secretary who just wants life to be interesting. John Finch, an animator at work on Disney's 'Alice in Wonderland,' wants Alice.

Dali scandalizes the conservative Finch and Alice, the coffee-bearing secretary, becomes Alice, the girl in a rabbit hole, and Finch and Alice both experience the surreal vagaries of the human heart.
