Boston Globe's Scott Alarik names Peter & Wendy one of the Best of '98. "A haunting, provocative and gorgeous study of the imagination's passage from child to adult."

"Enchanting melodies creat[e] a rich tapestry of images that filled the theatre with a euphoric atmosphere . . .Susan McKeown infuses the innocent lyrics and melodies with a sweet nostalgia, which brought tears to almost every eye in the house."
-Mary Power, Irish Echo
