Peter Pan and Wendy

Sidney Harman Hall
610 F Street NW Washington

Bold, budding scientist Wendy Darling dreams of earning a Nobel Prize. When Peter Pan arrives at her bedroom window, she takes a leap and leaves finishing school behind, chasing adventure among the stars. Facing down fairies, mermaids, and the dastardly Captain Hook, Wendy, Peter, and their friends discover the power of standing up together for what's right. J.M. Barrie's classic Peter Pan is reimagined for a new generation of theatergoers by American Theatre's Most Produced Playwright of 2019 Lauren Gunderson (Silent Sky, Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley). With "brilliant theatrical flair" (American Theatre), STC Associate Artistic Director Alan Paul (Camelot) directs this beloved tale of adventure and wonder, sure to delight adults and children alike this holiday season.

Washington Post - Recommended

"...You won't feel sledgehammered by Gunderson's overhaul of the text: Her adaptation hews enough to the plot to satisfactorily honor the original and still support some of her own playfulness. To wit, the relationship between a simpering Smee (Tom Story) and Smith's dandy dandy of a Hook offers the suggestion of extremely close friendship: Think Roger DeBris and Carmen Ghia in "The Producers." (And wait for the funny moment when Smee opens a trunk to equip the self-regarding Hook with his choice of personalized handless-pirate prosthetics.)"

BroadwayWorld - Highly Recommended

"...The ensemble of actors, under Alan Paul's expert direction, are exceptional. Sinclair Daniel as Wendy--reimagined as a confident young woman with scientific aspirations--gives a standout performance. She and Justin Mark as Peter Pan banter beautifully, and Daniel's self-assuredness is a lovely contrast to Marks' bravado and whimsy. Isabella Star LeBlanc as Tiger Lily delivers a powerful, thought provoking, consistent performance as she raises questions about Peter's complicity in Neverland's complicated colonial history. Other performances of note include Derek Smith as a flamboyant Captain Hook, Tom Story as a hilarious Smee, and Jenni Barber as a feisty Tinkerbell."

"...Director Alan Paul and his bountifully talented cast have created a lavish production for both the eyes and ears, from Jason Sherwood's enveloping sets and Isabella Byrd's often otherworldly lighting design to Loren Shaw's costumes, Jared Mezzocchi's projections, James Ortiz's puppet design, Jenny Giering's score, and John Gromada's sound design."

"...Gunderson's story follows the arc of the original stage play, opening on a London nursery at the turn of the 19th century. As her parents bustle about, preparing for a posh evening on the town, eldest sister Wendy (Sinclair Daniel) learns it will be her last night abed in the nursery with brothers John (Christopher Flaim) and Michael (a positively darling Chauncey Chestnut). Wendy must move to a room of her own: one more suited to a young lady about to enter finishing school to fulfill her destiny of becoming a "warm wife and doting mother.""
