It's December 1942, and New York's little-radio-station-that-could, WOV, is about to air its final broadcast of the holiday-themed Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade. That's the setting for The 1940's Radio Hour, a timeless play full of classic tunes sung in four- and five-part harmony. With its dance routines, swinging music -- including "Ain't She Sweet," "Blue Moon," "You Go to My Head" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" -- and beloved cast of characters, Radio Hour is a perfect holiday treat.

Unfortunately, it was terribly disappointing. As a life-long admirer of J.M. Barrie's version of Peter Pan,I had hoped the prequel would have some of the same magic and imagination. The lost boys are way too old to fit the dialogue, and Peter is older in the prequel than in the original Peter Pan! The opening scene tries to say that all children want to fly and never grow old, but that takes away the uniqueness of Peter Pan. Sorry to pan this piece, but it is not worthy of his name.
Written by Rick Elice, directed by Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, Peter and the Starcatchers reveals the wonderful story that precedes J. M. Barrie's beloved Peter Pan. Young orphan Peter and his mates sail aboard the Never Land in a high seas adventure, battling pirates to keep secret a mysterious and dangerous cargo.
