If you’re looking for a magical journey to Neverland (and who isn’t these days?), look no further than Chicago Shakespeare’s gorgeously innovative adaption of Peter Pan.
The newly remastered, 80-minute feature film of the acclaimed 2018 production was recorded by multiple cameras in front of a live audience. Now you can have a front-row seat, but only through January 1.
Based on J.M. Barrie’s beloved tale about the boy who wouldn’t grow up, the musical features a score written by George Stiles and lyrics by Anthony Drewe (the award-winning songwriting duo behind Broadway’s Mary Poppins and is directed and choreographed by Amber Mak.
“It is warmly and sincerely produced and the production values — flying machinery and all — are stellar,” worte The Chicago Tribune’s critic Chris Jones.
