There's a cautionary show biz maxim: "Never go on stage with animals or children -- they'll steal the scene every time.
hat's certainly the case with Debbie Allen's newest musical, "Alex in Wonderland," commissioned by the Kennedy Center and running at the Terrace Theater through the weekend.
The title character, Alex, is played by Kyle Jones, a talented, pint-sized charmer. He acts. He belts out songs. He lights up the stage. And when he taps with a "grown-up" he blows her away with relaxed easy grace. Talk about a scene stealer -- the adults don't have a chance when he's around, and much of the success of the show hangs on his vibrant performance.
But there's a bit of mystery about this young man. Most of the children in the large cast of dancers are seasoned performers. Their bios usually indicate their age -- "Arrington is an 8th grade student," "Chelsea is an 11-year old dancer," "Bethany is a proud 17-year old student." Kyle's bio only tells us he "recently relocated to California from Detroit" and he has appeared "locally, nationally and internationally." Could this diminutive performer be older than he looks?
