Review + Deals: J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan in Threesixty.
Who doesn’t love a good retelling of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan. But I think this one is the best I’ve seen. My husband and I went to see this production when it was in San Francisco, and we were HOOKED. I’m happy to report that this popular production of Peter Pan is making the rounds again. And I’m rounding up the ticket deals for you, with upcoming performances so far in the Washington DC area (McLean, VA), and then on to Houston and Dallas, Texas in 2015.
The touring show features well-presented 360-degree CGI theatre imagery, so you feel like you’re soaring over 200 square miles of virtual London and on to Neverland along with Tinkerbell, Peter and Wendy. Delightful puppetry produces a scary-amusing crocodile, Nanna the dog, and other creatures. The aerial acts and computer generated visuals take the experience to another dimension. Check it out in the video trailer below.
I think you’ll find the show unique and fun for adults and kids alike (but maybe a little scary for the littlest ones). Both earnest and at times tongue-in-cheek funny, this is live theatre at it’s best and good special effects in a state-of-the-art theatre tent. The stage is set up as a theater in the round, so you see the visuals all around you. More importantly, that means the theater has no bad seats, except possibly the very front row.
