CLOSE YOUR EYES AND LOOK.
Journey ‘down the rabbit hole,’ and meet ‘the mind behind Wonderland’ in this new bio-musical about the extraordinary life of beloved children’s author, Charles Dodgson, better known by the pseudonym ‘Lewis Carroll.’ From his childhood in Yorkshire to his eventual friendship with the young girl who would become ‘Alice,’ Dodgson’s conservative Victorian upbringing and keen knack for storytelling are paralleled through the famous characters which audiences have come to love. Get ready to peer through this theatrical ‘looking glass,’ and catch a glimpse at the kooky and amusing life of one of history’s most misunderstood geniuses.
Featuring Sabatino Vacca and members of The Cambridge Symphony Orchestra.
