The deft dancers of New York Theatre Ballet energize young and adult audiences with The Alice-in-Wonderland Follies, which the New Yorker describes as a “witty, charming” production. A colorful cast of beloved characters from the Lewis Carroll classics, such as the Cheshire Cat, springs to life along with an ultra-kinetic score and field recordings of rabbit songs. Choreographer Keith Michael conceives the show as a vaudeville extravaganza set to a crazy quilt of American music vocabularies, from ballroom waltzes to wild ragtime ditties. John Tenniel’s original illustrations inspire a stage set scattered with oversize children’s toys, including a dollhouse and alphabet blocks.

It seems like everyone has played the stage at Tilles Center. Past performers include Yo-Yo Ma, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and even a full-size dragon—or at least a puppet version of one. But not all of their bigger acts come from afar. The venue also plays home to local artistic heroes such as the Eglevsky Ballet.
