The only thing more critic-proof than the musical “Peter Pan” is a production of “Peter Pan” starring Cathy Rigby. And you have them both at Proctors Theatre in Schenectady through Sunday.
This production is great for kids. It’s eye-appealing, the flying is exciting and the story about the virtues of never growing up is a message everyone wants to hear. Two, the youngsters will not notice the production looks tired with several mechanical portrays that are just good enough.
It is hard to think of any musical with a better score than “Anything Goes.” It’s just as difficult to think of a cast who might perform those numbers better than those in the national tour playing at Proctors through Sunday.
This revival, which originated at Roundabout Theatre in New York City, is a happy musical that entertains and delights with great Cole Porter masterpieces. It opens with “I Get a Kick Out Of You” and follows with classics like “Easy to Love,” “Friendship,” “It’s De-Lovely” and “All Through the Night.”
