Let's see what the critics have to say!
Cindy Moss, Atlanta Parent: The actors are members of the playhouse's apprentice program, and they are talented recent college graduates who will work in every production at Serenbe for one year. The play was directed by Michael Alvarez, who has directed productions all over the world.
Wendell Brock, AJC: Clues about the story are placed along the path to the stage: A sign tells us that a darling little cottage in the woods is The Wendy House, which "the Lost Boys built for Wendy on the day that she and John and Michael first arrived in Neverland." Another signpost points the way to the Indian Camp, stating that the Lost Boys and the Indians were "fierce enemies until Peter saved Tiger Lily from the Pirates." These plot points from the various tellings of "Peter Pan" (play, novel, Broadway musical) lay the foundation for Mason and Grace's delightful follow-up.
Stephanie Robb, BroadwayWorld: I'd recommend this show for families with young children who are looking for a thrilling live experience with compelling visuals. Regardless of length, the show is vibrant and full of life - well worth the drive out to Serenbe on a weekend morning. The cast breathes new life into the familiar characters, and their energy transcends to the audience. Viewers of all ages will find something to relate to in this fun and cheerful production at Serenbe Playhouse!
