How’s this for a high-profile registrant?

A new stage musical, co-written by Blur front-man Damon Albarn, has opened in the UK this week, and it’s named after a new gTLD domain name.

wonder.land is a take on Alice in Wonderland that reportedly “tells the story of a 21st Century teen who immerses herself in a psychedelic online game.”

The production, which is running previews in Manchester until July 12 before transferring to the National Theatre in London this November, is using the domain wonder.land.

Reviews have been mixed.

.land is a Donuts gTLD with about 13,000 domains in its zone.

Chrome users who search for wonder.land in their browser address bar will be taken to the domain rather than a search results page.
