At the beginning I was reluctant to see this revival. I had seen the television show with Mary Martin and I didn't like it that much. But there was something I always like in this musical, it's score.

Every time I hear I'm Flying my heart leaps up, so I decided to go and see this critical acclaimed revival. I was in for a pleasant surprise and I surrendered to the charms of this new production.

The sets were magic, the costumes colorful and the dance numbers were really exciting.

As Peter Pan, Cathy Rigby is much more convincing than Mary Martin was. She acts like a boy and makes you believe she really can fly. She is the soul of the show and by the end you're in love with her.

Although seeing Peter and the others flying is truly amazing, the highlight of this revival is the Ugg-a-Wugg number.

Choreographed in STOMP style it works perfectly in the context of the musical and the audience simply went wild with it.

This new revival is a rousing entertainment for adults and children. So take all your family to the theatre and you won't regret it.
