Spring Awakening Writers Working On New Alice In Wonderland Musical!

Another re-interpretation of this story?

Granted, if anyone can make it work, it's them!

Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik, who are the authors behind the Tony Award-winning Spring Awakening, are currently workshopping a brand new show at London's National Theatre called Alice By Heart, which is inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland!

Sater explains of the piece, which was commisioned by the group's Connections program:

"It's about how to leave childhood behind and the challenge and struggle in that."

He goes on to say that the show will add a heightened sense of urgency and danger to the material, and will employ ensemble storytelling to explore "themes of grief and loss."

With the script and score expected to be completed in July, there will be a workshop presentation in the UK in November. Through the Connections program, 30 youth theatres will then get the chance to stage the show in February of 2012, and representatives from the National will attend them, and the best one will get to perform their version at the National Theatre the following summer!

What a wonderful opportunity for so many! We have a feeling that with this much talent going into it all, the show will have no problem getting picked up for a professional run in London or on Broadway!

Best of luck to everyone involved!

We can't wait to see how it turns out!

We would love to fall down this rabbit hole.

Tokyo's new Alice and Wonderland themed restaurant is gorgeous!

So many pretty colors and designs!

Alice of Magic World is filled with playing card dining tables, heart-shaped chandeliers, and beautiful paintings from the Lewis Carroll classic.

It even has themed food items on its menu such as Cheshire Cat tail pizza.

LOLz! Sounds disgusting, but the view is nice at least.

It's just so beautiful, we can't take our eyes off the photos. Check out the rest (below)!

Yet another reason why we love Tokyo.

We're intrigued!

Producers have announced that a new Broadway musical based on Lewis Carroll's classic tale Alice In Wonderland will be opening on April 17, 2011!

Wonderland: A New Alice will put a different spin on the story of Alice and chronicle how she's dealing with her career, her estranged husband and strained relationship with her daughter!

She eventually finds herself in Wonderland among the characters who help her rediscover her life as she searches for her daughter.

Sounds like a clever reinterpretation!

What do U think?
