WONDERLAND – A New Alice. A New Musical is featured in Watermark. Writer and editor Steve Blanchard sat down with Kate Shindle, who stars as Mad Hatter, to talk about her role in WONDERLAND and her work as an activist for HIV/AIDS:
There are many layers to Broadway actress Kate Shindle. The 1998 Miss America is recognized for her crown, her stint as a correspondent for Today and her roles in films and Broadway plays. But the New Jersey native, who is currently playing the villainess Mad Hatter in Wonderland: A New Alice. A New Musical. is also a big-time HIV/AIDS activist.
Shindle is relatively new to the musical, which has been revamped and reworked since it debuted in Tampa nearly a year ago. The 33-year-old has only been with the show since Labor Day 2010, and even in that short period of time she has seen the production evolve.
