Review On Peter and the Starcatcher


Tin Pan L.A.

Registered Critic


Opening the 2019 season for Domino One Productions is the swashbuckling play with music Peter and the Starcatcher adapted for the stage by Rick Elice. This play tells the story of how an unnamed orphan boy becomes the beloved Peter Pan we all know and love. Starcatcher also provides the backstories of other well-known characters such as Mrs. Darling, Tinker Bell, Captain Hook, and the lost boys—it's fascinating to discover origin of these characters.
