ALICE (in Wonderland)

For anyone fool enough to use this blog to decide whether to see The Washington Ballet for this weekend's performance of "ALICE (in Wonderland)", definitely go. I saw it Sunday and it was spectacular.

Having learned most of what I know about Lewis Carroll's work from small excerpts (and Grace Slick) I missed some of the references. Fortunately my well-read gf helped fill in the gaps. The hedgehog croquet was well played, made incredibly cute by the efforts of children no doubt recruited from the TWB school. And the March Hare made my nose twitch. It was seriously fun for the adults as well as the smattering of children in the audience.

If only that had been the last TWB show of the season for me.
