“...delightful magic... a twilight journey into a Mythic realm...  The 
colorfully painted figures, splendid vocal characterizations, and music 
enraptured us, with the freshness of discovery and enchantment where 
childhood's dreams are twined, in memory's mystic band.”
          Mark Burstein, Knight Letter, Lewis Carroll Society of North 

“Alice in the Shadows puts its own psychedelic spin complete with incense, 
flowers, a light show and ‘60s-style rock music...   So join the mad tea 
party, but don’t expect the squeaky-clean animated Disney version that has 
dominated the popular American imagination for the last 50 years.  That 
Alice doesn’t live here anymore.”
          Sandra Ross, Los Angeles Weekly
