Alice in Wonderland musical heading to Broadway


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Earlier this year, Tim Burton proved that audiences still crave new versions of the classic “Alice in Wonderland” story. Boosted by increased 3-D ticket prices, Burton’s “Alice” raked in $334 million, making it 2010’s second-highest-grossing movie to date.

But will audience members want to follow Alice down the rabbit hole to Broadway? Producers are about to find out, as “Wonderland: Alice’s New Musical Adventure” is poised to open in New York City next year. The New York Times reports that producer Frank Wildhorn (“Jekyll & Hyde”) supports the production, which traces its roots to Lewis Carroll’s text.

“Wonderland” follows a grown-up Alice on a wildly new journey. It will be directed by Gregory Boyd, from a book by Boyd and Jack Murphy.

The Times reports that “Wonderland” will play the Nederlander Theater, with previews beginning on March 21 and opening night scheduled for April 17.

That means Alice might emerge on stage before the long-delayed Spider-Man musical. What a tangled web Broadway weaves.
