Just about anybody who saw Mabou Mines' Peter and Wendy at Berkeley Rep in February of 1999 remembers it fondly.

Featuring a storyteller (played by Karen Kandel), a team of seven white-clad puppeteers, and six musicians, the show brought J.M. Barrie's classic novel to vivid, imaginative life in ways no other adaptation of the Peter Pan story had managed.

Adapted and produced by Liza Lorwin and directed by Lee Breuer (with music by Johnny Cunningham and designs by Julie Archer), Peter and Wendy was truly enchanting.

We were thrilled to hear that Peter and Wendy -- a decade after delighting Berkeley Rep audiences -- is still going strong. The show will be part of the Edinburgh International Festival Sep 2-5 at the Royal Lyceum Theatre.

Recalling the show brings such pleasure, but if you weren't lucky enough to see the show, here's a short taste of its artistry.
