We move too fast. We miss so much. We seldom see all the miracles in front of us…

- Jack Murphy, WONDERLAND

A modern-day retelling of the classic Alice in Wonderland story, Frank Wildhorn's Wonderland follows a woman living in current-day New York City whose marriage is falling apart and whose career dreams are slowly being pulled out from under her. When this contemporary Alice finds her way into Wonderland via a broken service elevator in her condo, she meets some familiar-ish characters: a Cheshire Cat with a Latin flair, a malicious Mad Hatter, and a delightfully dotty Queen of Hearts. After coming face to face with these friends and foes, Alice finds new strength in herself and discovers that she’ll do anything to find her way back to her daughter.

With a memorably tuneful, enticing, moving score by Broadway’s Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde) and Jack Murphy (The Civil War), and new soaring orchestrations by Kim Scharnberg, Wonderland is a deliriously funny, touching, life-affirming musical to stir the heart and delight the imagination.
