Alice in Wonderland
Tonight @ Off the Wall Theatre, 7:30 p.m.
Director Jeremy Welter looks to bring out the darker aspects of Lewis Carroll’s madness-laden stories in Off the Wall’s Alice in Wonderland, which is being marketed as a twisted, Escher-like journey into Wonderland complete with “emo punks, scary club kids and one very creepy cat.” The talented Liz Mistele portrays Alice as an occasionally sweet, sometimes foul-mouthed punk—an anchor for the madness of the world she is slipping into. Eric Nelson plays a number of characters, including the White Rabbit, Tweedledum and Tweedledee. Jacqueline Roush, an impressive new talent, plays the Duchess.
