Thank you Hilary Stroh and @bachtrack for the review of Devon Carney`s Peter Pan!🧚🏼💫

"Unquestionably, in Devon Carney’s alluring and terrifically comic Peter Pan, Paul Zusi, who joined the company in 2021, gave an absolutely smashing performance. From his characteristic stance, arms akimbo and feet in wide second, boldly ready for adventure, to his clean lines, lithe leaps, flying magic, and insouciant comic timing, he dominated every scene he was in." - 📝Hilary writes.
