Wonderland, the new musical that reinvents "Alice in Wonderland" for the 21st century, opened on Broadway April 17 following previews from March 21 at the Marquis Theatre. Janet Dacal, of In the Heights, plays a modern-day Manhattan mom named Alice, who sings a score by Frank Wildhorn and Jack Murphy.

Gregory Boyd directs the original musical, billed as "a new spin on the classic story of Alice and her lookingglass world," inspired by the tales of Lewis Carroll. This time, Alice is "a modern-day woman who goes on a life-changing adventure far below the streets of New York City, where a colorful cast of strange but familiar characters help her rediscover what's really important." Officially, Alice is in search of her missing child.

Here is a look at the opening night:
