Had Lewis Carroll been a flying trapeze artist rather than an author of children’s books, his work might have looked much like David Catlin’s 90-minute magnum opus: Lookingglass Alice. Though Carroll was limited by the constraints of 18th Century Victorian Literature, Lookingglass breathes new life into the tale with an enthusiastic repertoire of music, drama and gymnastics. Tweedledee and Tweedledum leave behind their trademark yet fashion faux-pas red suspenders and instead are transformed into a beatboxing duo capable of dancing like half-time show performers. Alice herself seems to have absorbed the powers of a Honk Kong action hero as she flies through the air suspended seemingly by an invisible hand. Tickets for this modern-day marvel start at $55 and will run from July 8-Aug. 16 at the Ziff Ballet Opera House; 1300 Biscayne Blvd.; 305.949.6722 ; LookingGlassTheatre.org.
