Peter and the Starcatcher Critics' Reviews

"The production’s ace is Christian Borle, whose gift for physical comedy allows him to express malevolence, cunning, clumsiness and clownish mischief through a body and face seemingly made of rubber."

Review by David Rooney from The Hollywood Reporter

"Alex Timbers and Roger Rees' spirited production of Rick Elice's play is that rare kind of theatrical event that can appeal equally to kids — who will be captivated by the sentimental, action-packed plot — and adults — who will admire its imaginative theatricality."

Review by Matt Windman from AM New York

"Unlike most shows about parentless children, this cleverly produced 'Peter Pan' prequel aims for the funny bone rather than the heartstrings."

Review by Melissa Rose Bernardo from Entertainment Weekly

"The extravagantly resourceful ensemble members of 'Peter and the Starcatcher' have almost nothing in the way of modern machinery to support their sky-scraping journeys. What they do have is some ordinary rope, a couple of ladders, a few household appliances, two toy boats and, most importantly, one another. And they have you, dear theatergoer, because in this ecstatic production you’re as important a part of this process as they are."

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times
