PAINTED ALICE

Book by William Donnelly
Music by Michael Mahler
Lyrics by Michael Mahler with William Donnelly

Drawing upon the whimsical, odd characters of Lewis Carroll’s well-known novel Alice in Wonderland, this contemporary incarnation reinvents Alice as a moderately successful lesbian painter who has been commissioned by an uppity arts junkie to paint “something with lots of yellow.” Struggling between her work as an artist and her life with girlfriend Dinah, Alice begins to question her loyalty to painting a piece that she is not inspired to create and her lukewarm commitment in a relationship that she has inadvertently put on hold.
