Alice

Alice a musical by Tom Waits       Theatre Inconnu       Nov 30 – 20, 2014

alice illustration copyThe Canadian Premiere of Alice – a musical by Tom Waits, Co-developed with Kathleen Brennan, Paul Schmidt and Robert Wilson.

Tom Waits is one of the most influential singer/composers of the late 20th century, and continues to inspire and challenge listeners to the present day. Waits and his three long-time collaborators have created a highly theatrical and richly textured performance piece, inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass. A number of the more familiar episodes from the Alice stories are enticingly reworked with Waits’ music and Paul Schmidt’s script, giving Lewis’ characters a new voice that powerfully explores the plight of innocence in a duplicitous world. This is Alice with an adult edge. Theatre Inconnu once more joins forces with Victoria’s own musical renegades, The Party on High Street; who so dynamically contributed to Love Kills, the Musical (2010).

“Waits, and Schmidt invite us to be Alice: to face the mirror, and to consider what it means (if anything) to be seen and unseen. For the characters in Alice, after all, that is both the question and the answer.” Theatre Journal

The BBC described the music for Alice as: “breathtakingly lovely… galumphing, sinister… utterly extraordinary… achingly bare.” BBC Music Review

And for those concerned about volume in our intimate venue; the music and accompaniment are performed mostly acoustically with minimal amplification.

Directed by Clayton Jevne, musical direction by Donna Williams, choreography by Stephanie Geehan, production design by Robert Randall, musical accompaniment by The Party on High Street (Travis Charuk, Nick Houghton, Brin Porter).

Cast: Melissa Blank, Wendy Cornock, Cam Culham, Marina Legace, Matt Mathiason, Reese Nielsen, Brin Porter, Graham Roebuck, Donna Williams
