Falling for "Then She Fell"

Life, what is it but a dream? 
--Lewis Carroll, from Through The Looking Glass

Then She Fell by Third Rail Projects--that critically-acclaimed, Bessie-winning work of site-specific, immersive theater--has had its run extended through December 28. I almost missed this captivating experience but made up for that unfortunate lapse last night on the occasion of my birthday. What better way to acknowledge the thrill and scariness of a time of transition than to tumble down the rabbit hole with Alice and wander a dreamy looking-glass realm of atmospheres, by turns, sensuous, spooky, troubling and volatile.

Written, directed, designed and choreographed by TRP's artistic directors--Zach Morris, Tom Pearson and Jennine Willett--Then She Fell boasts a brilliant team of collaborators and cast members. And you. If you will.

I just saw the show last night and still try to break the spell it put me under.

I like that you wrote so little of it. The less one knows, the better the surprise.
When I compared notes with my companion, we discovered there were very different smaller scenes within the narrative that did not match - I saw some, he saw different ones! I wish I could go back and see what I have been missing. Or just to immerse myself in it one more time and see if the magic wears off at all. I bet it does not.

I'm still thinking about the detail and extensive work that went into the creation of "Then She Fell." Magic(k) takes hard work! The Bessie Award was certainly well-deserved. I almost missed my chance to see this beauty, and I'm very glad that I got there. Glad you experienced it, too, Kamila. Thanks for your comment!
