Eva Le Gallienne

Eva Le Gallienne (1899 – 1991) was a theatrical actress, producer and director during the first half of the 20th century. She made her stage debut at the age of 15 in a 1914 production of Maurice Maeterlinck's Monna Vanna. The next year Le Gallienne sailed for New York, and became a Broadway star in several plays including Arthur Richman's Not So Long Ago (1920) and Ferenc Molnár's Liliom (1921) ... view full profile

This is a good, faithful adaptation of the classic books by Eva Le Gallienne (an amazing actor and theater visionary whose legacy has unfortunately faded into obscurity). This play is taken straight from the books with various cuts here and there -- no rewriting or additions. Some of the play could use more cutting, but alas.

The music is also very good. If you do a bit of Googling, you can find a recording online of most of the original soundtrack. Also, there is a DVD of a production from the 80s with all the music, too. A great resource for a music director, since the songs have somewhat irregular melodies and are easier to pick up if you can listen to a recording. The lyrics of the songs are taken straight from the books as well.

The piano score is disappointing (even at twenty dollars) because it is not even clearly printed music, but rather a facsimile of the original handwritten score. Samuel French should take the time to issue music books with music that is clearly printed. The music is already very challenging to play, and the blurry mess of a score book is only another obstacle for the music director and/or instrumentalist to overcome. I suppose, though, if you had a composer, you could create your own music for the play!

If you'd like to do a faithful adaptation of Alice in Wonderland with music, this is your best bet.
