A piece underscored by The Books? Yes!
Peter/Wendy by Jeremy Bloomthe cell (338 W 23rd St, New York, NY 10011) Map it
Conceived and directed by Jeremy Bloom (Leaves of Grass @ the cell), the plight of Peter takes on new life in an anxiety-ridden, deadly adventurous world of love, fairy dust and twilight. The pajama-clad performers, an exuberant ensemble of lost boys, pirates, fairies, and mermaids, explore familiar text compiled from the J.M. Barrie novels, "Peter Pan and Wendy" and "The Little White Bird." Featuring Bloom's signature low-tech, inventive image staging, Peter/Wendy reveals the nuances of Neverland.
A protege of Tony Award winning Mary Zimmerman (Metamorphoses), Bloom directs with a creative use of adaptation. The actors are warmly lit by bedside lamps against the lofted space go the cell using every inch of the multi-level indoor/outdoor stage. The entire piece is underscored by the acclaimed indie band, "The Books."
