    There is an overlooked musical number in the productions of Peter Pan: “Never Smile at a Crocodile”. I’ve heared it many times and I believe it would add much to the show if it was included.

    That is the hottest Peter Pan ever…but I’m pretty sure that’s not what they’re going fo.

  3. When my parents took me to see a stage play of Peter Pan when i was kid I was excited. Then I found out the person playing Peter was a woman. How could I have been more thrilled? This is clearly the best way to portray such a character. I mean, wouldn’t Hook have been so much better if Robin Williams was in full Mrs. Doubtfire make up throughout the entire thing??? Tell me I’m not crazy. I dare you.

    Yeah, I’m just not buying Peter here. I think it’s the nose. And the been there, done that factor. Getting really bored of the same ole stories told again and again only more politically corrected. Maybe it’s the really flat chest. I’m not buying this.

    This production will be missing one key element…more cowbell.

  6. John Choate says:

    Sharknado was a more believable pretense for a show.
