Mabou Mines returns to The New Victory with its innovative adaptation of J.M.Barrie's classic novel about the exuberant joy and bittersweet nature of childhood. "Peter and Wendy proves inventive and entrancing as it blends a tour-de-force performance by Karen Kandel, … with an exalted level of puppetry and evocative Celtic-tinged music and song." —The New York Times.
