Home to drag Alices and theme-park pop songs by Jekyll & Hyde’s Frank Wildhorn, Lewis Carroll’s alternative universe is now shamelessly stuck in the tackiest corner of the ’90s. It’s not the worst setting for the musical, especially when it comes to boy band numbers and Miss American AIDS activist Kate Shindle as the Mad Hatter. In fact, if you remove your brain and see it as children’s theater, you might dig this Wicked rip-off.
Marquis Theatre, through May 15.
Like its subject, Lindsay, D’Arcy Drollinger’s multi-media piece is a promising work in progress. His troupe scores with outrageous drag impersonations, especially of famous feuders Paris Hilton and the Simpson sisters, but recapping every headline can result in coked-up chaos. The show’s best when it slows down enough to let Drollinger, a winning out performer, deliver a monologue pulled from a Lohan interview or court statement.
La MaMa E.T.C., through May 15.
