This new musical, inspired by Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice in Wonderland, is a heartfelt celebration of courage and love in the face of tragedy. Young Alice Spencer takes shelter from the bombings of WWII in an underground London train station, along with her ailing friend Alfred. Their only solace is to escape into the world of Alice’s favorite book, and together they journey to Wonderland. Imagination transforms the destruction around them into a magical land where the characters explore love, loss, grief, and the painful need to move forward despite it all.
With a pop-rock score and a poignantly beautiful story by the Tony and Grammy award-winning creators of Spring Awakening, Alice by Heart encourages us all to celebrate the transformational power of the imagination, even in the harshest of times.
