Theater Review

Director/playwright Jeremy Welter throws a delightfully shadowy party on one of the smallest stages in town as Off the Wall Theatre frames Lewis Carroll’s works as a dark, retro, rave club land in the production Alice in Wonderland.

Jeremy Welter’s raver club land ALICE IN WONDERLAND onstage and Off The Wall

By Russ Bickerstaff
These days are strange.

Alice is Off Her Head

Tim Burton is obviously drawn to the look if not the substance of Victorian Gothic, and to protagonists relentless in their refusal (or inability) to conform. Little wonder he wanted to direct Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, a Victorian classic about a girl who flings herself down a rabbit hole into a world where the tedious logic of Western civilization is made...

From ‘Damn Yankees’ to ‘Alice in Wonderland,’ how movies ruin our imagination

Before Damn Yankees was popularly known as the best/worst butt-rock outfit starring Ted Nugent, Damn Yankees was a hit 1955 Broadway musical and 1958 movie-musical. And before it was a hit movie-musical, it was a children’s book called The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant.
