Contest: Win Tickets to Peter and the Starcatcher

Update: The contest is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered. I loved reading all your responses (Hook forever!). The winner was picked at random from all the entries. Congratulations @hitormiss!

Peter and the Starcatcher
, based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, tells the story of how an orphan became Peter Pan. It begins previews on March 28 at the Brook Atkinson Theatre, officially opening on April 15. Co-directors Roger Rees and Alex Timbers inventive staging uses the actors as part of the set and props. I saw this show at New York Theatre Workshop and I'm looking forward to revisiting it, especially to see Christian Borle once again take on the role of Black Stache.

J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan has been adapted into movies, plays, books, and musicals. To be entered to win a pair of tickets to the show, tell me in the comments your favorite version of Peter Pan. For an extra entry, tweet about the contest or retweet one of my tweets about it. (Only one tweet or retweet will count for an extra entry.) You must be following on Twitter to win. One winner will be chosen at random on Friday, March 30 at 5:30 p.m. Please include your e-mail address or Twitter handle in the comments so I have a way to contact you if you win. Good luck!

I actually think the Disney Peter Pan is the only one I've seen. So that one!

My favorite Peter Pan movie is the Disney movie. It's one of the first movies I remember seeing as a child.

I don't know if this quite counts- but my favorite Peter-Pan related film is "Finding Neverland". :)

Mine is definitely the Mary Martin musical version. Watched it over and over as a kid! @AshleyRaeBK

My favorite version of Peter Pan is the licensed musical version that is licensed to theatres, because my daughter played Peter Pan!

Yah, I have to stick with the Disney animated version of Peter Pan.

I finally saw the stage musical of Peter Pan last Xmas, the tour with Cathy Rigby as Peter (and Tom Hewitt as Hook!) at MSG, and really enjoyed it! That might be my fave now...although I quite liked the live-action film w/ Jason Isaacs as Hook, and my all-time fave Peter-related film would be Finding Neverland, w/ Johnny Depp as J.M. Barrie, which details the creation of Peter Pan the play...simply magical! :)

My favorite version is the show, Peter and the Starcatcher; I saw it at Nytw. I have seen many incarnations of that story but this show is the first time it connected with me. I love the focus on friendship and imagination more than just belief. I'd love to see what changes they make for Broadway!

my favorite version of Peter Pan is a tossup between Hook and the Disney cartoon. but in the end, i think i have to go with hook because i love Robin Williams and who doesn't enjoy chanting RUFIO! RUFIO!

My fave for 20 years was the Disney's Peter Pan, up until I saw NYTW's Peter and the Starcatcher and now I'm torn! Love them both!

The version I did in 6th grade -- I was the second understudy for Peter Pan and one of the Indians, and it'll always have a special place in my memories. I'm eager to see Peter and the Starcatcher though!

I just might have to go with Hook as my favorite. Tho I have a video of showstopping Broadway performances that has Sandy Duncan performing Neverneverland, which is pretty kickass too

I enjoyed P&TSC at NYTW and it's actually my favorite adaptation of PETER PAN (although I love the ride at Disney World ;). - @hitormiss

MargaritaV said...

The Disney version is my favorite so far but this one may change my opinion.

martha said...

favorite version -- any of the Mary Martin televised versions in the 1950s. Cyril Ritchard -- can't beat his feyness. Flouncing Captain Hook.

Wren said...

My favorite versionvis actually the recent movie version. I like the realistic portrayal of the characters and the very confident and powerful Wendy.

My favorite Peter Pan themed vehicle is Finding Neverland. I know it's not the story - but it's my favorite!

While I love the Mary Martin movie and owned it on VHS as a child, the only answer is HOOK. I want a cookie! I want a party! I want I want I want. ME ME ME. I I I.

Disney's Peter Pan will always be my favorite, no doubt about it! The book series Peter & the Starcatcher is great as well. If you like the show you should definitely read the book!

Enjoyed ALL of them (animation, movies, and tour productions).

If I had to choose one, probably Hook starring Robin Willian and Julia Roberts.

I liked Finding Neverland, although I'm a sucker for classic Disney animation ;-)
