From the Tony® and Grammy® award-winning creators of Spring Awakening (our inaugural Spot Young Co. production), Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik, and co-written by Jessie Nelson (Waitress) comes ALICE BY HEART.
Join us to see the incredible Spot Young Company–our flagship educational program–take on this beautiful new story!
In the rubble of the London Blitz of World War II, Alice Spencer’s budding teen life is turned upside down, and she and her dear friend Alfred are forced to take shelter in an underground tube station. When the ailing Alfred is quarantined, Alice encourages him to escape with her into their cherished book and journey down the rabbit hole to Wonderland.
As they travel through the tale, Alice by Heart explores the poignancy of first love, coming to terms with loss, and finding the courage to move forward. This world premiere musical encourages us all to celebrate the transformational power of the imagination, even in the harshest of times.
