New This Week:

My take: Nobody would consider this one of the great musicals of all time but, as I point out in my review for KDHX, it's a charming, family friendly musical romance that's hard to beat. Performances are outstanding and the technical aspects of the production are stunning.
My take: Lewis Carroll's characters have been through so many revisions and re-interpretations over the years that this new rock musical version hardly seems unusual at all. At Ladue News, Mark Bretz calls it a "festive, musical adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories, updated with a modern message and ‘happening’ music which makes for a frolic-filled production." The cast includes KDHX theatre critic Shannon Cothran as well as the exceptionally talented Omega Jones. And as an added bonus, it has nothing to do with Christmas.
