If you’re looking for tips on how to experience art in the Seattle area, you’re in the right place. In this weekly post, KUOW reporter Mike Davis has suggestions for what to do around Seattle over the weekend so you can have your own adventures in arts and culture.
Peter and the Starcatcher, is playing at Theater off Jackson. Produced in partnership with Reboot Theater Company, this play will tell the origin story of the beloved fairytale character Peter Pan. Reboot is known for reimagining theatrical stories through the lens of gender expression. This production will present the well-known coming-of-age journey, but will incorporate the experiences of queer youth in this magical tale.
I will see the production this weekend, and update this post, but after seeing Reboot’s production of “110 In The Shade,” which I enjoyed, I’m eager to see what they do with this former Broadway production that features well-known characters, but a story that many in the audience may not be familiar with. More soon!
