Previews from July 30th - August 7th, then runs every Saturday at 1pm open-endedly. When young, American Alice follows a mime into an elevator, she finds herself in a strange new world. Loosely inspired by Chagall's Paris Through The Window, Alice encounters two little runts with very sticky fingers and a very naughty Queen. She runs her first Caucus Race and meets a deck of characters that seem familiar and new at the same time. Some of them used to be animals but they seem to have been changed in the night. There's a Parisian feel to the entire affair, but you don't need to know anything about France to jump down the rabbit hole. After a successful run at The SoHo Playhouse in June of 2011, Alice... (formerly Alice Au Pays Des Merveilles) was selected as an open-ended children's theater project for the playhouse. Playing every Saturday at 1pm, children and adults will be enthralled with Alice's curiouser and curiouser adventure. Though the production has been scaled down in time and size for younger audiences, adults and teens will still have a fantastic time. This faithful adaptation to Carroll's original stories will make you laugh no matter the age, and fans of ALICE will be in heaven. Stretching the limit of our imaginations and creating an entirely new Wonderland, the production features a cast of ten actors doubling as the many characters of Lewis Carroll's classic story. AFTER THE PERFORMANCE, meet Alice and her friends in the Huron Club (downstairs) for autographs and photos.
