Lewis Carroll (novels), Elizabeth Swados
A taped version from the Elizabeth Swados/Joseph Papp New York Shakespeare Festival production, originally entitled "Alice in
Concert" and changed to "Alice at the Palace" for PBS, for which Swados also composed the score, adapted the book and
directed for the stage. Starring Meryl Streep and featuring Debbie Allen and Betty Aberlin, "Alice At The Palace" is an
entertaining and shrewdly conceived retelling of the Carroll classics with all of the beloved characters given a unique twist
by the witty and charming performances of an accomplished theatrical ensemble.
