Peter and the Starcatcher 


"Also theatrical storytelling at its best but with a more American sense of the English music hall style. Incredibly clever script and pre-imagining of the Peter Pan story. Crude low comedy realized in a most sophisticated way. The entire cast was an amazing ensemble, and Christian Borle's performance as Hook was wacky, sideways, wildly creative and free but also perfectly controlled, precise and very artful - comic genius. I think of one particular surprisingly long comic take that he did (when Hook loses his hand) and it still makes me laugh out loud."
