Second time seeing this, and I'd go back a third if I had the time/money :P

The one part I liked about the performance was the creativity displayed in the staging. However, had it been presented on a small stage, for not more than 60 to 75 minutes, it could have been a delightful children's performance. It was shown at...continued

Other people seemed to be really enjoying this, but we left at intermission. I can understand on an intellectual level why some people might have thought this was good, but it wasn't something you could just sit back, relax, and enjoy. It...continued

We left at intermission I am surprised to say. The story just seemed awfully mundane and boring. The first Act took a little over and hour to basically set up that Peter and 2 other orphans have been sold to some guy on an island who is going to...continued

A fun whimsical romp through a children's story we know so well. Excellently acted and show stealing scenes from the Black Stache and Smee will leave you laughing as you exit the theater. A true must see as it starts it's west coast engagement!...continued

First act is a little slow, but all in all clever dialogue and a cast clearly excited about doing this show. The second act is where things really get good so don't leave at intermission.

I thought this show was wonderfully creative and beautifully executed. Every detail from the acting to the sets to the music was fantastic. I would definitely recommend it.

Enchanted story-telling is what I can say about this show which we thoroughly enjoyed.

The first act of the play was confusing with the concept of the actors being more than one character, with period British accents, speaking quickly and lots of action to comprehend. I almost left at intermission.
Act 2 redeemed act 1 with the...continued

We are very fond of all things Pan, but hadn't read Peter and the Starcatchers. It took me a while to get into the story, since the beginning of the play doesn't hit you over the head with Peter. After a while, though, the acting, incredible...continued

We had a great time. The second half definitely seemed to move better, but the whole show was entertaining. Blackstache had great timing and command. The young girls next to us really enjoyed the show, laughing so hard it was almost deafening! ...continued

Enchanting, clever show. More for adults than for children.

I ordered tickets for us and out of town guests and was anticipating a similar experience to Wicked; however this play definitely is not in the same league as Wicked. The story was simplistic, the costuming bland, and this was definitely not a...continued

Good show; well produced and performed. Great cast, but the actor who played "Blackstache" really stood out (of course, the play was written that way). Quick, witty dialogue-pay attention or you'll miss a funny aside or throw-off line!
As to...continued

Seats were great. The cast is extremely talented. The 1st Act is a little difficult to follow, but the 2nd Act made up for it. There were some amazingly innovative parts to this show, and some of the humor was "Monty Pythonesque".

Overall, we had...continued

This was such a fun, inventive show! We received great seats (row C, center Mezzanine), and had a fantastic all-around experience.

It was like a staccato recitation of lines from a high school play, performed by disinterested actors. Some enjoyed it, but I share the opinions of those who gave it 1 and 2 stars. Certainly not worthy of the price or venue. Save your money, time...continued
