I saw “Peter and the Starcatcher “on Broadway with the original cast and it was a great time in the theatre. Christian Borle’s performance as Black Stache was stellar in many many ways. It is a play that is much more enjoyable in performance than it is in reading.
I liked the experience of reading this text, but to truly appreciate what Rick Elice (the playwright) has done here you really need to see it performed. And performed well. The myriad amounts of word play, verbal humor, etc. comes acros

I read the play before I read the books. This is one of the best plays I've read. It's hilarious, highly theatrical, and brilliant in it's storytelling. I read it in one full go while my daughter fell asleep on a four hour flight from Austin to Seattle. I laughed out loud, I cried, and my head is still spinning with wonder.

Full disclosure: The high school in which I teach is doing this for their fall drama this year. We did the read-through today, and it's a lot of fun! Hilarious and touching, with allusions abound. It's also, however, confusing, and not all of it makes complete sense. Can't wait to see this onstage.

Stellar twist on the origin story of Peter Pan. Would love to see a production of this. It sounds like it would be expensive to produce, but lovely to see unfold before your eyes. I may have to pick up the novel next.

I don't even know what to do with this... like I want to love it because it's Peter Pan but I found it kind of... cheap... almost. I'm seeing the show in a few weeks, so we'll see how it translates to stage.

Overall this is much better paced than the book upon which it is based. Most of the deviations from the original story make this work superior, until the last ten or so pages

I had difficulty getting through this play. It started out funny, but just seemed cheesy after awhile.
