This colorful and visually inventive take on the Lewis Carroll stories depicts Wonderland with gymnastics and acrobatics: it's like a Cirque du Soleil for the grade school set. It's full of theatricality, always busy and active, and it's clearly been created with skill and artful stagecraft. I was ready to be wowed once I saw how Alice's fall down the rabbit hole was presented. Curiously, the wow moments continue apace but, as the show has a lack of narrative clarity and no dramatic momentum, the moments don't build from one to another. Depending on your tolerance for theatrical circus, you could either leave wowed or weary.
