A review of Trey McIntyre's new "Peter Pan" for Houston Ballet by Molly Glentzer:

Ballet's 'Peter Pan': An enchanting pixie dusts the fairy tale


Unlike the hero of his first full-length ballet, Trey McIntyre has grown up. The world premiere of Houston Ballet's Peter Pan on Thursday at the Wortham Theater Center showed the 31-year-old choreographic associate to be a superb storyteller with a kid's heart and an adult's appreciation of life's complexities.

This Peter Pan is no Disney or Broadway tale of the boy who leads a girl and her brothers to Never Land but ultimately can't keep them there. Fed by the dark satire of author J.M. Barrie's 1911 novella, it is a playful, compelling tale that juxtaposes the whimsy of childhood with the pain of growing up. Act 1 sparkles with magic realism, Act 2 is like a madcap cartoon and Act 3 gets serious -- although not overbearing.
