With a nod to itsmee's 999 puzzle.

You fall down Alice's rabbit hole and are faced with three doors, each labeled This Way Out.
But you've been around this block before. You know only one door will get you home,
And you don't even want to imagine what's behind the other two.

Mad Hatter volunteers to help.
edit He will answer one yes/no question truthfully, if he can.
If he cannot, he will disappear without uttering a word.

Let's say the doors are A B C and you've got tickets for the Grateful Dead.

What's the question that will get you to the show?

Good point.
It must be a yes/no question.

Thanks.

Women are definitely stronger. We are [Fe]males, after all...

Some of what makes me me is real, some of what makes me me is imaginary...I guess I'm just complex. ;P

That will work. ;)
I will leave the puzzle open for other approaches if there are any.
