Michael Matthews directs a multi-character ensemble in Michael Lluberes revisionist adaptation of "Peter Pan" at The Blank's 2nd Stage Theatre.

From Margaret Grey's review in the LA Times:

Focusing on the characters rather than on the theatrical illusions that have beguiled audiences in the past (there's no flying apparatus -- characters lift each other up to "fly"), the show captures the intertwined magic and terror of childhood, the crushing loss to those obliged to outgrow it, and the irony that refusing to outgrow it means refusing to live.

Through June 2.
