Based on the life and work of Lewis Carroll and his disturbing relationship with Alice Liddell, the young girl he loved and for whom he wrote Alice in Wonderland, this is the opposite of passive theatergoing: it's a real adventure through the proverbial looking-glass. Performed in a 100-year-old institutional building that has been dressed to look and feel like an old asylum, crammed with all kinds of creepy Carroll ephemera, it viscerally arrives at is the awful standoff between a little girl and an older man who loved her inappropriately and made something beautiful for her to salve his pain—and also to ensnare her forever. It gets across the full horror of what that meant for her, and also what that means for us. $95-$125
