UnCommon Details: Peter Pan at Children’s Theaterby Matt Olin on October 24, 2019
The Biscuit’s co-publisher, Matt Olin, saw his first Broadway show at age seven: Peter Pan, starring Sandy Duncan. From the moment Peter flew over his head in the front row, he was hooked on theater forevermore. So you can imagine how nostalgic he was feeling this month when he took his seven-year-old daughter to the production of Peter Pan at Children’s Theatre of Charlotte. (And yes, Peter DID fly over the front rows again!)
So, The Biscuit decided to play another game of “Uncommon Details” with CTC’s beautiful set. Designed by Robin Vest, it’s filled with the sort of detailed work and true craftsmanship that will keep any theatergoer scanning for more hidden goodness throughout the show. As you’ll see in the descriptions below, the details and set items in the nursery were carefully designed to connect to the fairytale to come later in the story. Here’s a taste, captured behind the lens by Charlotte photographer John Merrick. Dig in!
Here’s a look at other set pieces you’ll see during the show.
You can fly! You can fly! You can fly!
