My son and I saw Alice on 2/14 and it was a once in a lifetime event. It was phenomenal! Actors did a terrific job. Great audience interaction. Spell binding. Theater... There wasn't a bad seat in the house. We hope to make it a habit of going more often. Recommend for young and old alike.

Looking Glass Alice was a fantastic show for all ages. The actors was mesmerizing and my granddaughters, 6 and 9 1/2 enjoyed the show and sat for the 90 min without moving. The balcony seats, only ones left to purchase, were difficult for the kids with the railing in the way- but leaning over helped.

"Lookingglass Alice" is a wonderful show. Absolute magic! Reaches theatre-goers of all ages. The theatre is an intimate space -- never more than twenty feet from the performers! Listen: I'll be honest! I've been a fan of this show for years. I've seen it several times. And each time, I'm simply enchanted. I already can't wait to see it again!

This was the second performance I attended at the Looking Glass, and the first production involving the Actors' Gymnasium. What a wild and wonderful ride it was! My husband is a long-time fan of the Alice books, and he loved the production and how it kept a lot of the flavor, if not the text, of the original. Based on... More

My two children and I saw a production of Alice last Friday, February 20. It was energetic, entertaining, funny. A wonderful production! The gentleman who played the White Knight was hilarious. The gentleman who played the Mad Hatter was breathtakingly agile. The gentleman who played the March Hare was gaily, madly, over the top. When the Mad Hatter and the... More

The acting and the stunts were incredible! Although this show is not for children, it is perfectly fine for children to see it. My seven-year old son enjoyed it as much as I did. I highly recommend it!!

We recently saw Looking Glass Alice at a small theatre in the heart of Chicago's magnificent mile. What a unique and cool experience! The acrobatics and performances were really great. The plot at times seemed somewhat beside the point and really just a jumping point for the performance. No complaints. I was impressed. I felt like it was a cirque... More

We were not sure what to expect when we booked this but it had gotten such great reviews we decided to chance it. It was important for us that it be a "family friendly show" which seemed hard to find in Chicago at this time. This was over the top wonderful. The cast is so talented and amazing. It is... More
