Immersive, Creative, Confusing, Fun, Solid performances

See it if you like immersive plays & a creative way to tell a full story. (sometimes immersive can mean vague plot, not here)

Don't see it if you don't like moving around and standing. You prefer a linear plot. Read more

“Though Peter plays an important role...‘Shadowplay’ is about his creator...It digs into the real-life tragedies that shaped the Neverland story...Despite the underdeveloped beginning, ‘Shadowplay’ quickly reoriented itself into a richer and more fulfilling experience. The story...was well-developed, and communicated in a way that was effective but not melodramatic...The true magic...did not come from its timing, story, or script. It came from its actors. The entire cast was exemplary.”
