PlayBlog   A Look at the Choreography of Wonderland (Video)
Wonderland choreographer Marguerite Derricks recently received an Astaire Award nomination for her work on the new Broadway musical that opened at the Marquis Theatre April 17. Here, she talks to "Just Dance" about her inspiration for Wonderland—her Broadway choreography debut.

Wonderland is described as "a new spin on the classic story of Alice and her Looking-Glass world," inspired by the tales of Lewis Carroll. This time, Alice (Janet Dacal) 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."

The musical also stars 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.
