Had Lewis Carroll been a flying trapeze artist rather than an
author of children’s books, his work might have looked much
like David Catlin’s 90-minute magnum opus: Lookingglass Alice.
Though Carroll was limited by the constraints of 18th Century
Victorian Literature, Lookingglass breathes new life into the tale
with an enthusiastic repertoire of music, drama and gymnastics.
Tweedledee and Tweedledum leave behind their trademark yet
fashion faux-pas red suspenders and instead are transformed
into a beatboxing duo capable of dancing like half-time show
performers. Alice herself seems to have absorbed the powers of
a Honk Kong action hero as she flies through the air suspended
seemingly by an invisible hand. Tickets for this modern-day
marvel start at $55 and will run from July 8-Aug. 16 at the
Ziff Ballet Opera House; 1300 Biscayne Blvd.; 305.949.6722 ;
