Neighborhood: Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.

I kBlack light is a bit of a Prague "thing." So, if you're looking for King Lear, you're going to be disappointed. And as for Alice in Wonderland, I think they borrowed from the concept, and didn't use the actual material. So, I'd suggest going in with an open mind.

That being said, it was fun. I'm not going to reevaluate my life choices (I'll save that for the Slav Epic), but I'm glad I went. It's light, fun, and pretty family friendly. No nudity, except for a painted cutout of a bare bottom, colorful, and with lots of movement. For parents, there was one part where two women were on their backs spinning their legs - panties/leggings on, but if you don't like such things, now you know.

Yes, it's touristy. Yes, it's not serious. But it's fun. And sometimes fun can carry the day.

This was our first black light performance so we did find it interesting at some parts. We went in based on Rick Steves audio recommendation so we did have some level of expectation. Perhaps it was the performance we saw (Aspects of Alice), the eerie music, show motion, combing with the black light just didn't go well with each other. I'm sure there are better written performance out there.

Prague was very hot in the summer so it was nice to sit down with cooler temperature. But I would suggest only go if you have ran out of things to do or got some time to kill.

I've read some previous reviews and I totally disagree with them. I found that "Acts of Alice" is a MUST in Prague. Before you decide to buy your ticket (about 25 euros) search in YouTube what are you paying for. It's a humble theater but I felt that the play and the actors transmitted a special feeling to me, including a fantastic music. I felt that it worth every Czech Koruna you spent.

I’m surprised by how many positive reviews this Black Light theatre has been given. It is an absolute rip off! The theatre is filled with shabby, kitsch decor that may once have been trendy many years ago but now appears worn and sad. The show was absolutely bizarre with no story line, just a jumble of scenes put together. It had a few special effects but not worth paying so much money for. Maybe I’m not arty enough to appreciate this strange show but I would recommend giving it a skip and spending your money on something that doesn’t waste 75 minutes of your time.

Last week I had the chance to attend in Prague to a supposing Black Light performance called Aspects of Alice in the Theatre Fantastika. I paid 720 czk for it waiting for a good black light performance but when the show started it could not be more dissapointing. This show is not a Black light performance. It's just a boring, senseless and bizarre show with five minutes of black light performance and then one hour and twenty five minutes of pantomime where some actors and actresses play a bad taste show. The story line has no sense and it includes two actresses in top less playing..., what? If you want to waste your money, please attend to Aspects of Alice, but if you want to see a good show keep on searching in other theatres because I'm sure any other performace is better than this one.

I really can't understand some of the negative reviews on here - I thought it was completely magical and would happily recommend it to anybody going to Prague. It is the first blacklight show I have seen (definitely not the last) so I can't say how good it is in comparison to other productions. People claiming there was no story to Aspects of Alice must have a very dull imagination. The story isn't spelled out for you and there are plenty of ambiguous scenes, but that just adds to the intrigue.

The creativity on show was immense. I won't detail it as I think that the surprises add to the enjoyment, but people who say this show is repetitive confuse me.

Perhaps expensive for Prague, but as a Brit I thought £20 or so for this was a steal.

A note on the nudity: it isn't sexualised at all, and it leads to a truly touching moment that perhaps wouldn't be possible without the nudity.

We went to the "Alice" show. It was expensive (~28euro/ticket). The show is 90 minutes long, but we had enough after 45 and left. It was old fashioned, mostly boring, dull, and repeated itself again and again. There was a very disturbing piece about an old jewish cemetery, with huge ghosts of jews. They were made with long beards, big hands and big noses in an antisemitic way. It was weird and made us feel very uncomfortable. Don't waste your money there. I'm sure there are other theaters that give a better and more modern show.

This was one of the weirdest things I have ever seen and my degree was in theatre. We went to see Aspects of Alice. It might give me nightmares I'm not sure yet. Do not expect to know what's going on, this show has nothing to do with Alice in Wonderland and there is no talking so it wasn't a language barrier thing. It's very amateur and very pricey, The sets are luminous in the black light and the effect allows for old fashioned theatre tricks where things appear to float about. Some of the tricks were good, some were dodgy. From other reviews I've seen a lot of people give up after act one, BUT WAIT! if you stay for act two Alice strips off in a section presumably dedicated to sexual awakening. Not in a sensual way, in a creepy 'Oh my God that magician is going to do her!' way. Do not take children or your mother, you will be embarrassed. Also the soundtrack will make you want to commit homicide.

This place came recommended but I honestly have no idea why. There are not enough words in the English and Czech languages to describe how awful this was. In fact, I would go so far as to say that this is the worst best thing I have ever seen, but that's giving it too much credit. I don't know what I expected but this really wasn't it.

While the use of lights probably was impressive in the early 90s, it is not impressive anymore. On top of that, the plot is super pointless, and honesty the second act was extremely inappropriate and very disturbing. Also at one point, a clown pulls his wife from a box -- honestly what kind of person keeps their wife in a box?!?!?!

Please save your money and your time (that you will never get back) and do not go here.
