PRAISE FOR PETER PAN
‘Lots of fizz and energy is this revival of the Stiles & Drewe classic play. What really makes things soar is boatloads of charisma and humour from the cast. Matthew Chase is an attractive Pan, equally petulant and fun loving, and special mention goes to a chameleonic Laurel Dougall as a Darling mother and a dynamic huntress. Beverley Grover’s lighting design is gorgeous, while the puppetry by Matt Rudkin and Daisy Jordan shows great wit: the crocodile is a particular highlight. The younger cast are uniformly brilliant, with very clever performances’
THE LATEST ****
’88 London Road’s energetic revival of Stiles and Drewe’s 2012 musical adaptation of Peter Pan is perfect family fodder for the holidays: funny and inventive, buoyed by strong central performances and a talented ensemble…. Enormously enjoyable production of a family-friendly musical, performed with energy by a likeable cast’
