A new look at ‘Wonderland’

Tuner bows on Broadway

Give the producers of Broadway tuner “Wonderland” credit: They know how to throw a tea party.

Sunday’s opening-night shindig at April, just upstairs from the theater at the Marriott Marquis, featured a spread the Mad Hatter would surely approve of. Teas infused with everything from raspberry to basil were readily available, and toward the back of the room, displayed among the playing-card-inspired topiary, were two expansive dessert tables that found room for scones and clotted cream among the more usual mini-cupcakes and cookies.

Heading into the shindig, composer Frank Wildhorn was optimistic about the possibility that he’d have an opening on Broadway later this year with a musical of his, “Bonnie and Clyde.”

It’s headed for the Main Stem in the fall. Or so he thinks. “I can only tell you what my producers told me this morning,” he said.
