Do you believe a boy can fly? You just might when you see what's going on in Peter Pan, the latest, greatest stage adaptation of J.M. Barrie's fantasy classic that's finally reached SoCal after its U.S. premiere in San Francisco, following its launch in London in 2009. Actually, its London debut was in 1904, minus the 360-degree video projection, and it was called Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up. Barrie's play then became a novel in 1911, a Disney animated feature in 1953, a Broadway musical in 1954 (starring Mary Martin, then in the '70s Cathy Rigby), a live-action film in 2003, and now a stage play once again. Unlike the Broadway version, this one's not a musical, but rather a 21st-century spectacle. Thanks to Three Sixty Entertainment's CGI visuals, audiences soar along with Peter and Wendy on a high-tech flight over Edwardian London into Neverland, home to the Lost Boys and Captain Hook. More fairy dust, please!
