"STRONG VOICED, LIMBER AND EXUBERANT"

"Any production of “Peter Pan” rises or falls, so to speak, on the strength of the actor playing the title role. Humphrey was a delight: strong-voiced, limber and exuberant, she held the audience captive from the moment of her glitter-dusted entrance through the large windows of the Darling children’s nursery. Wisely, she plays Peter in an innocent rather than petulant way. Done wrong, the character could come across as a bully and a brat. Put another way: There’s a reason that some immature, insufferable men are said to suffer from "Peter Pan syndrome." But Humphrey’s characterization isn’t that of a spoiled child who runs roughshod over other people. This Peter Pan is more like Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s “natural man,” a happy being unfettered by the demands of corrupting society." Read the full review here.
