Fringe Festival 2017: "Never Wonder Land"

Day: 5

Show: 22

Category: Something Different

By: Laughing Nomad Productions

Directed by: Katherine Skoretz

Location: Crane Theater

Summary: A mash-up of Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan told with movement and humor

Highlights: To be honest, I wanted to like this show more than I did. It's a great concept - what happens when Wendy meets Alice? But the story lacks momentum and moved a little too slowly for me. Still, dancers Tamara Koltes and Kit Shelton are both lovely and childlike as they wander through this mix of Neverland and Wonderland, and Michael Terrell Brown is charming as he portrays multiple characters from the Cheshire Cat to the Mad Hatter.
