PETER PAN, by
Look Out Atlanta!! The Lyric Is For Real!
Sunday, February 10, 2008
5.0
Oh my God! I just attended the final matinee of Atlanta Lyric Theater's "Peter Pan" and I must say it was, not only the most impressive play ever presented by Atlanta Lyric, but it was one of the most magical shows ever seen in Atlanta!!!! Look out Theater of The Stars, The Lyric has got it going on. From Broadway caliber sets and costumes to flying effects that wowed the audience at today's show, I was completely blown away. Not only did the cast get a well deserved standing ovation, but the sets got applause too!!! totally professional at every turn. Casey Lee Thompson's choreography stunned the crowed, especially the percussive UggAWug number. Carol Bufford's Peter was completely on target and convincing. Her Neverland number brought tears to my eyes. Daniel Britt's Captain Hook was both menacing and funny. The children were adorable and well cast. Truly another triumph in a season full of hits. Congrats to the cast crew and that amazing broadway pit orchestra!!! Wow! Ask anyone who has seen it. A magical experience. If only it could have had a longer run! Director Brant Blocker has another hit under his belt for the Lyric. A+++

Congratulations to the Lyric Theatre. They finally got it right. In the small confines of the Byers Studio space, director Brandt Blocker delivers a show worthy of praise. From a stellar cast (Jeff Juday, Clasi Miller, Robert Wayne, Googie Uterhardt and the 3 doo-wop girls) to fine production values, it felt like a real theatre show for once at the Lyric. Lighting, sound (yes, the mics and backing tracks were flawless), choreography (the talented Ricardo Aponte) were all top notch. The costumes were good. Not great, but good enough. I highly recommend this show and encourage the Lyric to continue to produce at this level. A++
