Chicago Reader- Highly Recommended

"...Bros do Prose, according to its website, "adapts epic literature into 2-person immersive and physically electric shows." Its version of Peter Pan is a mix of the well-told tale and modern, comedic updates. At its core, though, it remains a heartwarming tale about how growing up isn't so bad as long as you remain young at heart."

Chicago Theatre Review- Highly Recommended

"...J.M.Barrie’s tale energetically unfolds in this speeded-up, theatrical version of the beloved story. The production’s filled with humor, adventure and just a touch of melancholy, all of which is succinctly captured in this delicious, 90-minute one-act. For audiences, age 6 to 60, this exciting production, is a terrific, two-actor extravaganza. It boasts infectious rap music and a sound design (by Michael Huey and Ella Raymont) and flashy fight choreography (by Dan Renkin) that reminds audiences of a Q Brothers version of “Peter and Wendy.” This fanciful family affair makes a great alternative to Chicago’s typical holiday fare and may even inspire younger theatergoers to seek out and read the original novel. What a wonderful holiday gift!"
