San Francisco: Peter Pan

While we weren't looking, Peter Pan and his entourage flew into town from London and raised two big tents (one holds 1,350 seats, the other is an open-air restaurant and souvenir shop). It is a rousing production done in the round, and everyone gets a good seat. All the better to see the Mick Jagger-ish Peter and the very edgy Tinker Bell. Audience favorites include the spectcular incarnation of the crocodile, the animal puppets, and the take-you-there, scene-setting scenery projections onto the inside of the tent. I saw it without children in tow and do highly recommended you bring a few yourself--their excitement is a big enhancement. Check the website for information about tours and other special events.
