Blending acrobatic performance with physical comedy and ingenious stagecraft, the original 2005 production of this show transcended eye candy to illuminate the heart of Lewis Carroll’s famous books of fantasy: the tender feelings between him and ten-year-old Alice Liddell. The appealing Lauren Hirte and the brilliant Lawrence E. DiStasi play Alice and Lewis once again in this revival. Adapter-director David Catlin serves Carroll’s text well, but this is never a merely faithful adaptation: by pulling out all the stops on sight gags and stage images, it remakes its classic sources.
