Damon Albarn’s Alice In Wonderland Musical Will Play England This Year, France Next Year

Here’s another project to keep Damon Albarn from ever finishing another Blur album. Albarn wrote the music for wonder.land, a musical inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. The script and song lyrics are by Moira Buffini, the National Theatre’s incoming director Rufus Norris will direct, and it’s a Manchester International Festival/National Theatre co-production. After debuting in Manchester this summer, wonder.land is scheduled for London’s National Theatre in November, followed by a run at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris in 2016. Tickets for the Manchester shows are on sale here starting 1/22 at 11:30AM GMT.

Next up on Albarn’s schedule: Probably some shit besides finishing the next Blur album.
