Featuring 20 actors, stunning puppets, epic music, dazzling flying sequences, and the world’s first 360 degree CGI (computer-generated imagery) theatre set, this unique production of PETER PAN is presented in the striking setting of the threesixty° Theatre at Tysons Corner Center (1971 Chain Bridge Road at International Drive, Tysons Corner, VA). The show is performed “in the round” in a 1,500-seat theatre-tent. The entire interior is lit with more than 15,000 square feet of Hi Resolution video, so that both cast and audience are immersed in a virtual Neverland.
This remarkable and beautiful production premiered in London’s Kensington Gardens, the original home of Peter Pan. Seen by more than 750,000 theatregoers worldwide to date, Peter Pan – The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up was created by Scottish novelist and playwright J.M. Barrie. One night, Peter flies into the London nursery of the Darling children, Wendy, John and Michael, teaches them to fly and leads them to the magical Neverland, “second to the right and straight on till morning,” where they live with Tinker Bell, the Lost Boys and meet the notorious Captain Hook. The tale of PETER PAN has been adapted many times, including a Walt Disney animated film, a Broadway musical, and an Emmy Award-winning TV special. However, it was not until this production, presented by threesixty° entertainment, that PETER PAN was performed in London’s Kensington Gardens, where Barrie was first inspired to create the character and where the original statue of Peter Pan has stood since 1912.
PETER PAN has dazzled audiences and critics alike. The San Francisco Chronicle called it “Spectacular” and the Boston Globe said, “Captivating wonder of PETER PAN hooks all ages. Truly Jaw-dropping.” Making its triumphant return to the United States, PETER PAN features all new direction by award-winning director Thom Southerland and new set designe by seven-time Olivier Award winner, William Dudley. Thom Southerland and Tanya Ronder are co-adaptors of PETER PAN from the J.M. Barrie story, with original music composed by Benjamin Wallfisch and additional music by Howard Herrick. Choreography and movement creator is Gyspy Snider, co-founder of the internationally acclaimed Les 7 Doigts de la Main.
