I laughed. My heart exploded. I was inspired.
Peter and the Star Catcher was my first Broadway (technically Off-Broadway) play in New York City. This play was an exemplar of amazing story telling and it deserved all of the awards it received. PATSC is a prequel of Peter Pan’s story and how his life came to be. Jason Ralph did an excellent job portraying Boy/Peter Pan and I could not take my eyes off of him. His eyes. You could seriously see a lost, angry boy in those eyes. A friend of my told me I would be bawling at the end and while a few tears slipped, I couldn’t actually…cry. Why? I guess I was in some type of trance. The fact that these actors…told THIS story…in such a magnificent way…I just couldn’t be sad. It was beautiful.
The ending. Goodness.
If you’re in New York City, planning to go…please, make it your mission to see Peter and the Star Catcher.
