And lo, Ráúl Éspárzá saw this mockup, and said, "Yea, this shall be the vehicle for my return to musicals."  
And the people of Broadway said, "But Ráúl, it is no Company."  And Ráúl was angsty.

REVIEW: Peter and the Starcatcher

When I last saw "Peter and the Starcatcher" at NYTW, it had two things going for it: 
  1. The handmade-style theatricalism (someone's fist represents a doorknob, a flying cat is obviously on a fishing pole) that felt sweetly at home in its off-Broadway setting
  2. Christian Borle as the pirate "Black Stache".
The second of these two was actually out filming the pilot for Smash when I saw it off-Broadway.  Regardless, I had loved this Off-Broadway prequel to Peter Pan and although I still recommend after the uptown move (particularly with Borle back), the Brooks Atkinson Theatre unfortunately doesn't have the intimacy that this play deserves.

We're, like, days away from a Tranny SMASH stageshow, aren't we.
