Alice vs. Wonderland Program: Artistic Director's Welcome

Artistic Director's Welcome

Welcome to Alice vs. Wonderland!

I am thrilled to welcome the internationally renowned Hungarian theater and film director János Szász back to our mainstage. János has created a number of stunning productions here at the A.R.T.—most recently Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull—and I am so glad that he has returned to stage this adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

I am especially delighted to showcase the A.R.T. Institute again this season on our mainstage. This production features graduate actors from the Institute Class of 2011, and was "remixed" by Brendan Shea, a recent graduate of the Institute’s dramaturgy program who has tailored the script to this ensemble. Every spring, our first-year Institute students spend three months studying and training at the world-famous Moscow Art Theatre School. Alice vs. Wonderland premiered in Russia at the American Studio of the Moscow Art Theatre, where it played for three months to sold-out houses. Now it comes back to Cambridge for its American premiere.

Alice vs. Wonderland is a love letter to a classic coming-of-age tale—it provokes, evokes and lets us dream. I am very proud to offer this opportunity to experience the next generation of theater artists as they begin to make their mark on the theater of tomorrow.
