Director Tyler Brodess shared a new take on the classic down-the-rabbit-hole plot with the arcade-esque music, chunky Tetris-like foliage, and fun silhouetted transitions that were just as playful as the scenes they preceded.
Cast members shifted from amplified actions to perfectly insync ones as called for, like the scene between Tweedledee and Twedledum (Valentina Caballero and Rayan Moosa), and the chorus of Flower Girls (Samantha Droste, Reema Roy, Sabrina Gambini, Amanda Bonds, Alysha Panjwani and Alexis Geddie). It was a fun, bright show that encapsulated the imagination and wonder Lewis Carol constructed 150 years ago, and showcased it in a new, (neon) light.
