Radio Interview: Brendon Fox on Who's Talking with D.G. Martin

In the PlayMakers Repertory Company’s production of “Peter and the Starcatcher,” audiences will be engaged by a humorous adventure with lively storytelling and delightful stagecraft...the cast is great, but the creative team also stars in this production, garnering thoughts of “what a cool way to do that” with several different elements of design — light, set, costume and sound.

The book itself has been adapted for the stage, into a fabulous play of (almost) the same name, by Rick Elice, and the results are nothing short of extraordinary, especially when this madcap play is being produced by Playmakers Repertory Company under the frenziedly-fun direction of Brendon Fox.
This being the third production of Rick Elice’s Peter and the Starcatcher that I’ve seen (and the first regional production), I was looking forward to a new interpretation. Thankfully, under Brendon Fox’s direction, PlayMakers Repertory Company succeeds in presenting a new, fresh take on the story of how the Boy Wouldn’t Never Grow Up came to be...The story is engaging and exciting, shedding new light on a familiar story. PlayMakers Repertory Company’s winning production deserves to be seen, and serves as a strong alternative offering during the holiday season.
