Through The Looking Glass
The NOLA Project is known for staging productions of Shakespeare plays in NOMA’s sculpture garden, but this May it stages an update on another familiar story. Andrew Larimer directs Pete McElligott’s Adventures in Wonderland, a choose-your-own-adventure-style adaptation of the well-known story of Alice. Audiences can choose among three tracks depending on how active they want their viewing experience to be: they can follow the Red Queen as she attempts to take over Wonderland, they can dash madly around the garden with Alice and the Cheshire Cat or they can sit leisurely with chairs and blankets to take in the Mad Hatter’s tea party.
The show runs Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday and two Fridays, May 7-25. Information, NOLAproject.com
