Alice Interrupted

It’s not exactly Wonderland, but when Alice eats a bad mushroom, it’s close enough. Loosely based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the Miami Light Project presents the southeastern U.S. premiere of William Donnelly’s Painted Alice at the Light Box Studio. Produced by the Mad Cat Theatre Company, Painted Alice is about an uninspired artist, Alice. After accidentally eating a hallucinogenic mushroom, she falls into her canvas and meets a variety of colorful characters who help her realize what it means to be an artist. The play stars Mad Cat actors Michaela Cronan and Joe Kimble and is directed by Paul Tei. Tonight’s opening festivities begin at 7:00 at the Light Box, 3000 Biscayne Blvd., Miami. Tickets cost $40 and include free food, drinks, and a meet and greet with the cast after the show. Call 305-576-4350, or visit www.miamilightproject.com for a complete schedule.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: March 17. Continues through April 8
