David Catlin first adapted and directed Lookingglass Alice in 2005, and it remains a consistently thrilling take on Lewis Carroll's work. Madness is literalized onstage as scenes from the Mad Hatter's tea party to the game of flamingo croquet are brought to life by the enormously talented cast of five, who double as aerialists and acrobats. Beneath the spectacle, we're reminded that life is about change and inevitable loss (only the White Queen can live backwards, after all). And though "grown-ups are never off balance," the Cheshire Cat tells Alice, the production endeavors to place us exactly there; it is, after all, where much wisdom resides. —Suzanne Scanlon
