Two major Tony Award-winning Broadway veterans team up with two of the most exciting writers in American theatre today to bring a cherished tale into the present. Wendy’s life is about to change forever when she meets a boy named Peter, a pirate named Hook, and a beguiling, beautiful Crocodile, who’s much more than meets the eye. In this thrilling, funny, dangerous look at J.M. Barrie’s novel Peter Pan, a whole new Neverland comes to life. Fly will take audiences on an adventure propelled by a powerful and percussive score, dynamic choreography and aerial acrobatics.
“Wendy – a girl seduced by the mysteries of Neverland, and struggling with her own impending womanhood – is the focus of this singular version of the Peter Pan story that combines stunning choreography and an exhilarating, percussive score.”
– Christopher Ashley, The Rich Family Artistic Director of La Jolla Playhouse
