It's hard to know how critical to be about children's shows. Take this Emerald City Theatre version of Lewis Carroll's classic fantasy, for instance: will the under-ten crowd care that adapter/director Ernie Nolan supplies no guiding concept other than the assumption that they all have attention deficit disorder? Will their parents be looking for anything more than bright costumes and familiar characters? If the answer to both questions is no, then Nolan's meaningless rumpus might be right up everybody's alley. Sure, Carroll's hallucinatory nonsense is tough to stage—but it's also very clever, and that quality that doesn't shine through here. —Keith Griffith
