Red Door Theatre’s own Josh Jordan brings us a brand-new adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, the timeless tale of the girl who fell down the rabbit hole into a make-believe world where only madness makes sense. Taking cues from Japanese kabuki theater practices, the show will feature startling face paint and garish, kimono-style costumes. It’s a brilliant way to interpret a story we’ve seen a million times, with the majority of the action taking place in the court of the dreaded, homicidal Queen of Hearts. Red Door is not responsible for any heads lost in the course of the evening. 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 3:30 p.m. Sundays. Through August 19. 4513 Red Bluff Road. For information, call 281-542-0500 or visit www.thereddoortheatrecompany.com. $10 to $15.
Fridays-Sundays. Starts: Aug. 3. Continues through Aug. 19, 2012
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
