Fantastic show. Fun and imaginative recast of the classic story. The staging is very clever. Great performances from the lead and all the puppeteers. Only one criticism: a little too long.

Description

The story of Peter Pan and the Darling family comes magically to life in Peter & Wendy, a visually stunning and aurally breathtaking theatrical experience from the world-renowned experimental theater company, Mabou Mines. 

Peter & Wendy, a multi-award winning production, including the OBIE award for Best Production, reimagines a classic tale through elegant east Asian puppetry and a gorgeous Celtic musical score, resulting in a uniquely imaginative spectacle of the stage.

From the novel by J.M. Barrie

Adapted and Produced by Liza Lorwin

Designed by Julie Archer

Music by Johnny Cunningham

Directed by Lee Breuer

About the Ticket Supplier: Arena Stage

Arena Stage today stands as a flagship American theater. Arena Stage was one of the first not-for-profit theaters in the United States, as well as a pioneer of the regional theater movement. It was the first regional theater to transfer a production to Broadway, the first invited by the U.S. State Department to tour behind the Iron Curtain, and the first to receive a Tony Award. Taking a leadership role in extending theater’s horizons, Arena Stage has implemented groundbreaking policies and programs, promoting diversity in all aspects of theater, from theatergoing to production.

The Arena Stage legacy of world-class productions includes vast epics, charged dramas, rousing musicals, and probing profiles. From the monumental to the developmental, Arena Stage has helped build the canon of American theater. While they produce American classics, Arena Stage premieres new American plays and supported works in progress. They’ve nurtured artistic growth and engaged the community, broadening and intensifying the theatrical experience for one and all. And yet, in spite of it all, in their second half-century they see themselves as more fresh, restless and dynamic than ever.
