About:  I just love live theater. Plays, musicals it makes no difference. It's the experience of that moment and the storytelling that counts. I have a day job, but when I'm not at work or going to shows I can usually be found singing in a barbershop quartet or chorus.

Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You liked the movie. Some good special effects and overall pretty presentation. The score is adequate with 1 really beautiful song.

Don't see it if You're expecting another Peter Pan and fantasy. This is more a story about J. M. Barrie the author of Peter Pan, which I happen to like.
