Review by Publisher's Weekly Review
Reader Reynolds buoyantly leads listeners down the rabbit hole and into the topsy-turvy world of Carroll's Wonderland. When the young Alice follows a waistcoat-wearing rabbit holding a pocket watch, she finds herself in a fantastical world of talking mice, disappearing cats, hookah-smoking caterpillars, fish-headed footmen, and babies who turn into pigs. She shrinks smaller than a mouse and grows tall as a tree, participates in a mad tea party, plays croquet using flamingos for mallets, and runs afoul of the ill-tempered Queen of Hearts, whose cry of "Off with their heads!" seems to be the answer to most anything. It is a madcap, nonsensical entertainment, and Reynolds leaps into this tale's telling with enthusiastic aplomb. Fully embracing the material, Reynolds delivers the author's whimsical prose, poetry, and quirky characters with just the right touch of theatricality: bigger than life, but not completely over-the-top. It is a fine-tuned, enjoyable performance that allows the wonder of Wonderland to shine. (Dec.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
