Frank Wildhorn's Wonderland closed on May 15, 2011, following 33 performances. We remember the show by looking back at the two-show day documented by cast members Jose Llana and Heather Parcells. The duo shared photography duties, with Parcells offering photo commentary.

Amid the madness of a premature closing week and various put-in rehearsals, the duo found time to share photography duties. Parcells offers photo commentary, introducing the various characters who inhabited the backstage world of Wonderland.

Here is a two-show day at Wonderland with Jose Llana and Heather Parcells:

Gregory Boyd directed the original musical with a score by Frank Wildhorn and Jack Murphy, 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."

Wonderland starred Janet Dacal (In the Heights) as Alice, Darren Ritchie (Little Shop of Horrors, Thoroughly Modern Millie) as White Knight, E. Clayton Cornelious (The Scottsboro Boys, A Chorus Line) as Caterpillar, Jose Llana (Spelling Bee, Flower Drum Song) as El Gato, Karen Mason (Hairspray, Mamma Mia!) as Queen of Hearts, Kate Shindle (Legally Blonde, Cabaret, Jekyll and Hyde) as Mad Hatter, Carly Rose Sonenclar (Les Misérables, Little House on the Prairie) as Chloe, Edward Staudenmayer (Spamalot, Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me) as White Rabbit and Danny Stiles (regional productions of Guys and Dolls and Sister Act: The Musical) as Morris.
