Alice in Concert
Meryl Streep starred as "Alice" at New York's Public Theatre. Later aired on PBS, this imaginative rendering of the Lewis Carroll classic is performed concert-style on a bare stage, the actors in modern rehearsal clothes. Stylistically, the music ranges from rock to country/western to calypso, as the outlandish characters of "Wonderland" are reinterpreted in this "story theatre"--Type setting. "Ms. Swados' new dramatized cantata ... made me think of Carroll very deeply ... [She] magnificently catches most of Carroll's divine nuttiness."-The New York Post
