Peter and The Starcatcher

by thecustomhouse

I recently saw the Broadway production of Peter and the Starcatcher and I cannot recommend it highly enough.  It’s based on the book by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson.  The story imagines the prehistory of Peter Pan, including how Peter Pan got his name, how he came to Neverland, and why he could never leave. We learn the true nature of his relationship with Mrs. Darling and how Hook really lost his hand.  The production is fun and sweet and sad in exactly the right measure.
