1979 Alice in Concert
Featuring Meryl Streep; presented by Joseph Papp at The Public Theater/Anspacher, 1979, Winner: Obie Award — Published by Samuel French
A musical adaptation based on Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll. Meryl Streep made a great impression in this musical directed and produced by Joseph Papp at the Public Theatre. An extremely imaginative rendering of the Alice in Wonderland story, performed on a bare stage. The music encompasses everything from country-western to calypso, all transmogrified by Ms. Swados’ inimitable style. “Ms. Swados’ new dramatized cantata … made me think of Carroll very deeply…. [She] magnificently catches most of Carroll’s divine nuttiness…. Her best musical to date.”– N.Y. Post
